"Seating in the stalls" Theater alla Scala Tip by Nemorino

Theater alla Scala, Milan: 57 reviews and 96 photos

  Category I seats in the stalls
by Nemorino

All the seats in the "stalls" (or "orchestra" as we would say in American English) are Category I seats at La Scala, meaning they cost EUR 170 per seat on an average evening.

As far as I know you have a good view of the stage from any of these seats on the lower level, unless some very tall person or someone with a big head happens to be sitting right in front of you.

You should be aware, though, that not all Category I seats have good visibility. The front seats in the boxes (see previous tip) are also Category I and also cost EUR 170, but some of them have an extremely limited view of the stage. So just paying the highest price is no guarantee you will see the whole stage.

When La Scala was renovated from 2002 to 2004 the old carpets on the lower floor were removed and replaced by wooden floors, which evidently are better for the acoustics.
