La Scala is an internationally famous opera house built in 1778 and is home to the La Scala Theater Chorus, La Scala Theatre Ballet, and La Scala Theatre Orchestra. After being severely damaged by WWII bombs, it reopened in 1946 with a concert conducted by the famous Arturo Toscanini. Come learn about the theater's rich history at the connected museum—or with a guided tour, if that's more your style. Tours take you onto the stage, into the royal box, and behind the scenes, where they make costumes, props, and much more. The museum is full of artifacts and is definitely worthwhile for anyone with an interest in opera.
