"The world famous La Scala is open again!" Top 5 Page for this destination Theater alla Scala Tip by Henrik_rrb

Theater alla Scala, Milan: 57 reviews and 96 photos

The world famous operahouse in Milan, La Scala, has now finally re-opened. After being re-built, or nearly newly built indoor, for more than two years it?s now open for the crowds again.
Unfortunately this long time means that it?s really hard to find any tickets now? But make a try! Should be worth it if you?re a big opera-fanatic.

You could order tickets online from their homepage, see the address-field.

The theatre was opened in 1778. Until 1996 it was driven only by the economical gifts from the public, but since 1996 it's a private theatre.

The building itself has its venue very close to the Duomo, with just the galleria between them. From the outside it doesn?t look anything special, just like a common house. But from the moment you enter it?s a total other thing.
From the day of re-opening (7 december 2004) the museum of La Scala has also returned to the building.

To get there, just take the metro to the Duomo, or a taxi if you don?t want to take the metro in your opera-clothes? From the Duomo it?s as written above very close.
