Un Opera d’Arte

Our visit this morning to the workshop of La Scala is an insight into the expertise and love that have made it one of the most prestigious opera companies worldwide. This vast space houses artisans at the peak of their trade, responsible for the costumes, stage design, and set that the grandest productions demand. After time to relax downtown or back at the hotel, don your evening wear for the grand finale, opera at La Scala! Arriving before doors officially open, a VIP backstage visit uncovers history, technology, and personalities through the years. Over prosecco in the stunning atrium, hear notes on this evenings production of Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera before sitting back in orchestra seats to savor the sights and sounds of opera at La Scala.

Arie dall’Alto

Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, prosperous families built private horseshoe theaters, providing an intimate performance venue for the local population. Teatro dei Rassicurati in medieval hilltop Montecarlo di Lucca is a beautiful example and the venue for our private operatic recital featuring performers from the nearby Puccini Opera Company.
