Those who succeed as singers in the famous Milan opera house have won their triumphant march around the world. The Milan audience is considered particularly critical and those who are not one of the very best will be whistled out.
The very special highlight is the annual season premiere. It takes place every year on 7 December, the holiday of Saint Ambrose, and is broadcast live as a world event on the worldwide cultural channels.
So it is no wonder that the tickets for La Scala in Milan are highly sought after and sold out quickly.
The Scala is known for classical productions, which is what most opera lovers love. The state-of-the-art stage technology and incredibly creative set designers are known for their refined performances.
