Italy: Milan’s opera house reopens in May


After the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions in Italy, Milan’s fabled La Scala theatre will reopen to the public on May 11 with a concert by the WienerPhilharmoniker, conducted by Riccardo Muti.


The exhibition will only be open to a maximum of 500 participants. 


The Nuovo Regio Ducale Teatro alla Scala was established on August 3, 1778, and was originally known as the Nuovo Regio Ducale Teatro alla Scala (New Royal-Ducal Theatre alla Scala).

Antonio Salieri‘s Europa riconosciuta had its world premiere.


Any of Italy’s greatest operatic performers, as well as many of the world’s best singers, have performed at La Scala.

The La Scala Theatre Chorus, La Scala Theatre Ballet, La Scala Theatre Ensemble, and the Filarmonica della Scala orchestra perform at the theatre, which is recognised as one of the world’s leading opera and ballet houses. 


The La Scala Theatre Academy (Italian: Accademia Teatro alla Scala) is an affiliate school that provides vocational instruction in music, dance, stagecraft, and stage management.


The Filarmonica della Scala orchestra was established in 1982 to create a symphonic repertoire to complement La Scala’s operatic tradition, with members drawn from the Orchestra della Scala’s greater pool of musicians.

Carlo Maria Giulini and Riccardo Muti led the Filarmonica, and there were also collaborations with some of the greatest conductors of the day.
