Operas are typically performed in their original language with Italian
subtitles. Get the full story before the opera! Select Italy offers a variety of libretti in
English to complement your opera tickets.
Dress nicely for Italian musical events. You may be turned away if you are
dressed too casually. Opening night opera performances require a full dark suit for men, an
elegant dress for ladies.
Operas, ballets and concerts can run anywhere from 1.5 to 3+ hours.
Consider your evening transportation options for returning to your hotel. Some trains or
public transportation may not be available after 10:30 pm.

The website of Select Italy is very good in that it is possible to check programs under the condition of the selected dates and the places. It is very useful for tourists. Passport is necessary for ticket pick-up. When I visit your country again, I will use Select Italy.
About the Theater
Opened in 1999, the Auditorium di Milano was created by restoring the old Cinema Teatro. The structure dates back to 1939 and had lain idle for many years. The main hall of the Auditorium is now the home to one of Italy’s important symphonic ensembles - the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi. Under the guidance of conductor Riccardo Chailly, the Orchestra is a highly flexible and versatile group, boasting a repertoire that ranges from Bach to the main composers of nineteenth-century symphonic music and creating new programs combining classical music with more unusual offerings.
