Build by the end of 18th century La Scala has been several times refreshed . And in a very good way. Sound is to the perfection. Seating is not the best, as many seats seem already quite used and do not offer expected comfort. Representations are of world-class. Another Must while staying in Milano.

Concert performance of Aida with last minute cheap tickets. Having never been to opera this was an experience both musically and for the La Scala environment. Both great. We are in Covid times so this was a concert not acted performance and the theatre has very restricted seating to ensure social distancing - very strange with c.150+ on stage with orchestra and chorus and feeling like the same audience size. Tickets on the day were very expensive at c. £150 but a small release (about 140 in normal times and c36 in Covid) is released via a strange system (NOT initially the box office but a queue down the side street near the stage door - I’ve pasted below from the official website, we were actually told the wrong place by the box office - it’s the side street where there is a covered walkway). It’s all a bit complex and you probably queue at various times for 1.5 hours during the day but tickets were c£10. Be warned that these are limited visibility and for the concert set up where the whole stage is used and the main performers are standing where the orchestra pit is this is worse - but you are in the gods and can stand and people do. A real mix of local opera lovers and a few tourists use this. Process is below and remember - register first as the email gets your reference number that is needed and take your passport. Initial registration is 1pm and you return at 5.30 pm before being sent to the box office. We were there at 12.50 and were 27 and 28 in the queue. Assume this varies on the day and some web sites say you have to be much earlier. Take a view that there is no guarantee and it’s a bit of luck and plan your day around local activities to La Scala - duomo, La Scala museum, walk around castle and parks etc. Copied - Every performance the Theatre offers balcony numbered tickets for seats with reduced visibility (performances of Special Projects are not included). “L’ACCORDO” Association, registered in Largo Vulci 7, Milano, collaborates with the Teatro alla Scala Foundation and is officially responsible for managing the queue, handing out tokens and calling the roll prior to the purchase of the tickets; members of the staff of “L'ACCORDO” Association are provided with identification badges. Before the purchase, it is necessary to register your personal data by accessing the wi-fi network "Biglietteria_Scala" with your smartphone and following the registration procedure, or at the electronic totems in the Box Office. Any changes to the times given above will be communicated in advance via the official page. 1. LIST REGISTRATION: every spectator must be present in the queue and show their identity document. 2. ROLL CALL: the spectators on the list, present at the time of the roll call, answer the call for themselves and at most one other person indicated on the list (showing their respective documents). Spectators who do not respond to the appeal lose priority in the queue. 3. PURCHASE: at the end of the roll call of all the people on the list, each spectator, accompanied by the representatives of the Association L’accordo and equipped with the customer code relating to the registration at the Theater Ticket Office, can purchase a maximum of 2 tickets, one for himself and one for another person on the list. The buyer’s name will be printed on the ticket and he/she will be required to show his/her ID card at the entrance to the Theatre. If the names do not match, admission will be denied. It is not possible to select seats. Seats cannot be exchanged or given away.

My heart goes out to the City Of Milan every day during this trying time. Also sad is that I associate this with my much anticipated trip to La Scala, the Monumental Opera house of Milan. Unfortunately we purchased last minute tickets to the now moved on "Quartette." I was told that this was a "different kind of" opera and when I Googled "Quartette" I got spun into information on 4 piece music but no real information on the performance. Neither did it occur to me that there was a nearly empty Opera House and that being able to choose your seat should have made it obvious that we should have stayed away. So after revelling in the magic of La Scala, the Building, the opera commenced--we thought. It turned out to be neither singing, nor music, nor acting. The little stage box was cute but there was absolutely NO sense to the experience. It was nauseating and disappointing and within 15 minutes I was in tears at what I was hearing and seeing; random awkward notes and disgust. I left my family and my box trying to get help but was sent "upstairs" to an empty room. When I was returned to my family, they all wanted to leave and we did, asking ushers along the way what we should do. Other patrons were leaving as well. This was not even remotely opera. And La Scala knew that. They knew tickets were not selling. We have seen many operas, ballets and plays in big cities around the world. I have watched other performances that i did not "agree" with, but I have never felt ill enough--nauseated, anxious and regretful-- to leave behind a purchased seat. This is not what I paid way too much money for. My credit card understood but Teatro Alla Scala refused to refund. This is my memory of our last evening in Milan. (Family of 5 adults.)

Another symbol of Milan is alone in his magnificent solitude, nobody around, only the tram pass by completely empty

We went to the museum and enjoyed it very much. I didn't know much about italian operas so It was great to see the art, the instruments and to see inside the actual theater through a window.
