As per tradition, December 7th, 2019, is the starting day for the season at Teatro alla Scala in Milan, which this year opens with Giacomo Puccini‘s “Tosca” directed by Riccardo Chailly.

The program includes 15 opera titles, 8 ballets, symphonic concerts and singing recitals.

The Teatro alla Scala is one of the most important opera houses in the world and a debut at La Scala is for artists, singers, dancers, conductors, at the same time a consecration and a test of their abilities.
For all music and dance lovers, it has become the Opera House par excellence and a point of reference where it is mandatory to go at least once in a lifetime.

The inauguration of the season is on December 7th, a particularly significant day for Milan because it is the patron saint Ambrogio’s day, and the inauguration evening became one of the most important cultural and social events of the Milanese and Italian life.

The first performance staged at the Teatro alla Scala was the opera “Europa” by Antionio Salieri in 1778.
