The Teatro alla Scala is an opera house located in Milan, Italy. It was founded on August 3rd in 1778, and has been a beehive of the performing arts since. The Teatro opened with Antonio Salieri's opera (L'Europa Riconosciuta).<div>The theater was built when the Royal Ducal Theater, which was back then the main source of opera and performing arts in Europe, was burnt by a fire in 1776. Teatro alla Scala was built on the land where once stood a church of Santa Maria alla Scala, which explains the name of the theater.<br><div>Although it is formally considered an opera house, the Teatro alla Scala (commonly known as La Scala) is not only that; it is also an amazing place to see many other arts apart from opera such as many types of dance and instrumental performances.</div><div><i>In my personal opinion, </i>the Teatro alla Scala is one of the best, if not the best, (European) opera houses/theaters in the world.</div><div>I have seen many ballets and operas in the Teatro and it is truly magnificent.</div><div>The building in which La Scala is located is also incredibly beautiful, and it is of the typical architecture of the Italian late 18th century. It was designed by the great Italian architect, Giuseppe Piermarini. </div><div>(If you are interested in seeing how this style may look, I recommend you to look at the historical sites of Italian cities such as Milano, Bergamo, Firenze, and so on and so forth.)</div><div>Nowadays, there are many diverse performances in La Scala, including special ones for children.</div><div>If you are on a trip in Italy, and perhaps stop by in Milan, I strongly advise you to visit the Teatro alla Scala. You can buy tickets to the performances online. <i>Buon viaggio!</i></div></div>
