About La Scala

Milan’s “Teatro alla Scala” (or La Scala, as it is commonly known) is the world’s premiere Opera house. After the former Teatro Ducale burned down in 1776, La Scala rose from the ashes to become a meeting place for the Italian elite, as well as one of Italy’s most revered attractions. La Scala was built to accommodate every class, as it hosted multiple levels ranging in affordability, including a large standing room only section, which served as the Opera community’s peanut gallery, judging each new opera for the world. Guiseppe Verdi (born 1813) maintained a special relationship with the Italian people through La Scala, premiering many of his works there.

In 1907, La Scala was renovated to limit the standing space and increase the seating. The renovation lasted until World War II when the famed Opera house was ravaged by numerous bombings. It was rebuilt into its current incarnation after the conclusion of the war, and has since regained its spot as one of the world’s greatest theaters.
