La Scala Opens In An Away Game

For the first time in 224 years, La Scala opened its season outside of its own theatre. “The newly built, 2,400-seat Arcimboldi, in a former industrial area, will host La Scala’s full program of operas, ballets and concerts through December 2004 while La Scala Theater, the company’s venerable temple of bel canto, undergoes a $56 million renovation.”
