Overview

This tour is essential for anyone with an interest in the art of opera and theatre. The world-renowned La Scala opera house was inaugurated in 1778 and many of the finest artists from across the globe have performed here.

Your specialised guide will lead you through the museum rooms and shower you with anecdotes and curiosities about the great artists who performed here.

View the collection of remarkable instruments such as psalteries, lutes and lyre-guitars and even the Sommer fortepiano that belonged to Verdi. Learn about the man behind the intricate design of La Scala; Giuseppe Piermarini, who was also involved in the construction of the Royal Palace, the Palazzo Belgioioso and many other Milanese landmark buildings. Peruse the collection of costumes, busts, artwork and props which have all played their part in the history of the building. 

Explore the magic of the theatre from the boxes and see the sumptuous room with its crystal chandelier and of course, the stage. With a little luck, you might even see the artists’ rehearsal!
