Teatro alla Scala


Beautiful Theater

Teatro alla Scala, the most celebrated opera house in the world, lies in the heart of Milan, Italy.  La Scala, as it's known, opened its doors in 1778 with the performance of Antonia Salieri's opera L'Europa riconosciuta.

This opulent theater premiered many of the best known works of Rossini, Puccini, Verdi, Bellini and many others throughout its history.  The most celebrated opera stars and conductors graced La Scala's stage at one time or another and is often noted as the most important stage in the career of  any performer.

La Scala takes its name from  Santa Maria della Scala, which was a church that once stood on the same site in 1391.   Santa Maria della Scala was then torn down in 1776 when a fire damaged  the Palazzo Reale which left the city with no main theater. The task of rebuilding the theater was given to Italian architect Giuseppe Piermarini in 1776 .  During World War ll La Scala was again heavily damaged by bombs but was quickly rebuilt and reopened on May 11, 1946 with an acclaimed concert conducted by Arturo Toscanini.

La Scala now has 2800 seats a massive stage and some of the best acoustics in the world.  This theater now and then has attracted the most demanding audiences in Italy.

Today,  Teatro alla Scala remains one of the finest examples of Italian culture in the world.  To learn more about this beautiful theater and it's history visit their website at Teatro alla Scala.org.
