The La Scala Opera House is the premier opera venue of the world.

It was inaugurated in 1778 and is still in operation, having hosted many opera legends, including Arturo Toscanini, Maria Callas and Luciano Pavarotti. The La Scala Museum – Museo Teatrale alla Scala –  is adjacent to the foyer and contains an extraordinary collection of art, costumes, and other memorabilia of opera and La Scala's history.

The Accademia d’Arti e Mestieri dello Spettacolo is La Scala’s Academy for Performing Arts. The school continues to cultivate talent in voice, music, dance, theatre tech and design.
