The Teatro alla Scala was founded under the auspices of the Empress Maria and was inaugurated on 3 August 1778. It was originally known as the Nuovo Regio Ducale Teatro alla Scala (New Royal-Ducal Theatre alla Scala) and has a capacity of 2,030. Most of Italy’s greatest operatic artists, and many of the finest singers from around the world, have appeared at La Scala. The theatre is regarded as one of the leading opera and ballet theatres in the world and is home to the La Scala Theatre Chorus, La Scala Theatre Ballet and La Scala Theatre Orchestra. The theatre also has an associate school, known as the La Scala Theatre Academy (Italian: Accademia Teatro alla Scala), which offers professional training in music, dance, stage craft and stage management.
VIP group guided visits (min. 10 participants) to the theatre are now available with SF Events Italy!
We hope to be able to provide ticketing, special tours and other services soon.
