The world-famous Milan opera house, La Scala, reopened after more than six months of closure due to Covid pandemic.

Mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala said: “The reopening is a positive sign and we have to make sure it sticks. We have to be tolerant and remain careful.”

The reopening program includes selections of music composed by Verdi, Henry Purcell, and Richard Wagner. The fact that Milan citizens were thirsty for opera proves the information that all the tickets for the show sold out in just a couple of minutes.

La Scala has been closed since October 22, 2020. It usually kicks off its new season on December 7 but this time it got skipped for the first time in twenty years.

In normal conditions, La Scala can welcome more than 2,000 visitors, however, due to social distance and the pandemic restrictions, only approximately one-fourth of total spots were available.

Italy began easing coronavirus health restrictions in late April, and as of May 15, it will begin allowing foreign tourists to travel in the country with proof they are virus-free. Photo Wantedinmilan
