The exhibition for the fortieth anniversary of the death of Maria Callas intends to tell the singer’s artistic life at Scala. A theater that, between 1950 and 1961, has been able to provide the cultural instruments that have turned the singer into a myth. The story that connets the costumes is divided between the shows that Callas has played and the most important artistic meetings of her career. On one hand, the story of Callas at Scala must go through her most important interpretations, recalled by quotes from the press review of then. On the other hand, it is important to emphasize the role of this theater as a research lab for the singer, thanks to an influences of places such as the Scala Museum and people like Luchino Visconti, Nicola Benois, Tullio Serafin and Franco Zeffirelli.

Tickets for the Museo Teatrale alla Scala also include admission to the Museum’s temporary exhibitions.

Onde d’emozione e battaglie navali al Museo! (Waves of emotion and sea battles at the Museum!)

 Interactive family workshops.

The Museo Teatrale alla Scala is a special place. It tells the story of all the men and women who have made the Teatro alla Scala the most important theatre in the world. Even so, visiting a museum is often considered boring and useless. But nothing could be further from the truth!

With “Buongiorno Museo!” that feeling of detachment will turn into enthusiasm, curiosity and enjoyment. And our greatest allies in this challenge are indeed statues, pictures, musical instruments and costumes.

After the guided tour of the Museum, the workshop will take place in the foyer of the “Arturo Toscanini” boxes. In this space, there will be a sea of theatrical water where children will be able to embark on a voyage of discovery of the most famous operas, which they will even be able to perform in. The children will also be given a handmade product to keep.

age: 6 – 11.
Price: € 30 (one adult and two children).
