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, the day of the feast of Saint Ambrogio, the Milan patron saint, and the inauguration evening became one of the most important cultural and social events of the Milanese and Italian life.
