The Scala Experience

The Scala Experience invites you to discover the high society of the 1800’s, when concerts and ballets were attended by elegant ladies and gents in tails. Explore one of the most famous opera theatres in the world, Teatro alla Scala, through music, art and design.

The Scala Experience takes you to discover the original scores that made history in Opera, including Giacomo Puccini’s original 1896 score of La Bohéme at the Ricordi Archives. Dive into the world of theatrical design while visiting master tailors. They make spectacular costumes and outfits and outstanding sets and backdrops created ad hoc for the Scala Theatre. Last but not least, enjoy the Opera from an exclusive loge.
