Description

The Teatro alla Scala is the most famous opera house in the world. His name is linked to Rossini, Donizetti, Bellini, Verdi and Puccini that is the greatest composers. Throughout the 1800s and 1900s the greatest singers passed on this stage. The adjoining museum was created in the early 1900s thanks to the acquisition of the Sambon collection and gradually got richer and richer. The visit focuses on the objects, paintings, musical instruments that adorn the rooms rearranged in 2004 by the director Pier Luigi Pizzi. We will travel from the 1778 date of the inauguration with an opera by Salieri to the great successes with Callas and Tebaldi, Nureyev's ballets and Strelher's direction. It will also be possible to visit the foyer of the neoclassical style theater where the public is entertained during the breaks and see the historical hall of the theater stopping in some boxes open for visitors. We will also visit the outside of the theater to understand on which "sacred" place Piermarini's building stands. An unmissable visit. Entrance to the Scala Museum is not included in the visit.
