What to Expect
Meet your knowledgeable local guide at La Scala Theater and get ready for an education in opera. This tour is a feast for the eyes and the mind, as your guide leads first through the theater's museum, regaling you with the history of the theater while being dazzled by the display of intricate costumes once worn on stage, musical instruments played by famous musicians and various stage props used in famed productions. See also painted portraits of some of the most famous composers and performers -- from Guiseppe Verde to Arturo Toscanini. Then spend some time in the museum bookshop browsing at books about opera, in general, and famous composers, in particular. 
As you tour the theater and museum, you'll gain an appreciation of the amount of work that goes in to an opera production at this famed venue. 
Book early to avoid missing out! La Scala is extremely popular and regularly sells out weeks in advance.
