The Teatro alla Scala is a centuries-old opera house. The theater hosts opera, ballet and musical performances throughout the week.

The Academy for the Performing Arts is located on site as well, so there is something to see no matter when you visit.

Milan has a long history of opera, producing some of the finest singers and performers in the international scene. The Teatro alla Scala is at the center of this activity. The theater has hosted the world’s most famous operas since 1778 and is recognized internationally for its design and sound.

From the outside the Teatro alla Scala has a reserved appearance, with a simple Neoclassical facade. The majestic beauty of the building is saved for its interior. See elaborate columns, mirrored hallways and the huge chandelier that hangs above the audience. The auditorium can hold more than 2,000 people. Its acoustics are highly regarded. Book a seat for a ballet, opera or classical concert from the theater box office or online to hear the stunning resonance of the room.

History enthusiasts and opera aficionados will love the Museo Teatrale alla Scala, a museum dedicated to the history of opera. Walk through a vast collection of costumes, set designs and classic posters dating back over a century. The museum has existed since 1913; much of it is devoted to the work of Giuseppe Verdi, one of the most famous opera composers in history.

The Teatro alla Scala is located in central Milan and is easily reached on foot from many downtown hotels. Come by car and find street parking in the area. The theater can also be reached by metro. Guided tours are available of both the theater and the museum. An admission fee applies. The museum is open daily, except for lunch time and specific days noted on the website.
