Written by Lanfossi, Carlo
The theater’s history from its origins to the present day, richly illustrated in color. La Scala is “the world’s number one theater, because it is the one that gives the greatest musical enjoyment,” wrote Stendhal on November 10, 1816.

Today, the theater is still recognized as one of the leading opera and ballet venues in the world.  This lavish book–with impressive pairings of text and illustrations–presents a chronology of the major operas, ballets, composers, and performers from 1778 to today and represents an invaluable guide for both amateur opera fans and aficionados.  Through six sections–the beginnings; the first half of the nineteenth century; the second half of the nineteenth century; the first half of the twentieth-century; the second half of the twentieth century; La Scala in the new millennium–this volume tells the fascinating story of the building.The theater's history from its origins to the present day, richly illustrated in color.
