Milan knows how to satisfy all types of tastes; lyric, theatre, entertainment and music and all sorts of artistic expression find their place in the city. Each year in the territory, ten million tickets for artistic, musical and cinematic events are sold, in line with other European centres such as Berlin, Amsterdam and Barcelona.
Its tendency towards the new knows how to co-exist with its strong ties to tradition and the result is an original and globalised language that speaks to lovers of lyric theatre, as well as to avid patrons of the more alternative and avant-garde scene.
For all this, Milan is a privileged place of meeting and contrast, suited to curious lovers of artistic and dramatic experimentation, but also for those who simply wish for a relaxing interval, perhaps grabbing an aperitif while listening to good music in the most fashionable locales. It is in these entertainment venues, such as Zelig, where the most important artists of the international music scene perform and where new talents are born.
Milan has always been the Italian city where cabaret is most widespread and still today, venues in Milan, for example the legendary Derby in Via Monterosa, are a benchmark for comedy and a springboard for young artists. Last but not least, thanks to a dream realised by Giorgio Strehler and Paolo Grassi, the Lombard capital has become the “city of theatre”. It has opened the doors of this art, both that of the great classics as well as the more experimental avant-garde theatre, to anyone and everyone.
