The programme covers the most varied theatre and dance performances and invites an array of international artists.
Milan has its very own “temples”, privileged places where the spectator is also the protagonist. La Scala, for more than two centuries, has seen the most illustrious names in music and dance take turns on its stage. Composers, conductors, dancers, choreographers and scenographers of a very high level have followed one after the other making La Scala the fashionable lyric temple that it is today. During the “prima” (season opening) the theatre has always created a wonderful ambience to the delight of its audience. Today the spectator can relive the emotion of the atmosphere of this theatre, enjoying operas, ballets, concerts and singing recitals.
Furthermore, evenings of prose are by no means lacking, rather they have become a tradition. Over the years, the classics too have become a regular engagement with the Milanese public and one cannot miss performances such as ““l’Arlecchino servitore di due padroni” (Servant of Two Masters) at the Teatro Grassi (Grassi Theatre), interpreted by Ferruccio Soleri.
