TEATRO ALLA SCALA, MILAN
The world’s most famous opera house, Teatro alla Scala
is considered the king of opera houses with its elaborate neoclassical design. Founded in 1778 under the auspices of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria, the first ever performance was Europa Riconosciuta
by the Verona-born composer Antonio Salieri. La Scala underwent a major restoration and modernisation in 2001-2004. We highly recommend you take in a performance here during your stay in Milan
- be it opera, ballet, or other types of concerts - to experience the grandeur.
