La Scala opera house to reopen

July 09, 2004|From Associated Press

Milan's La Scala opera house will reopen temporarily in December after an ambitious three-year restoration, officials there said this week.

After a few weeks of performances, the company will return until April to its temporary home, the Teatro degli Arcimboldi, while workers test new set-changing machinery, La Scala superintendent Carlo Fontana said.

The season will open with the same work performed when the theater opened for business in 1778: Antonio Salieri's "Europa Riconosciuta."
