I was in the middle of the “platea” near the centre aisle. The acoustics is great anyway. The boxes are peculiar- you can buy two seats or the whole box. It is because they don’t want to be stuck with a box with 2 seats left at the back. In the boxes, the back row seats have limited visibility, which you can deal with if it is one party, but amongst strangers, it becomes difficult as you are either standing or leaning over people. I suspect this drives the booking policy.

Online booking and ticket print is very easy. Tickets in good seats are not cheap and anyway, I went to a Christmas concert which was 189 euros each. But... there are seats for all pockets, for example- standing seats at the very top of the theatre are very reasonable but you get what you pay for

i booked about two weeks before february performance of la cerenterolla opera.

i took a risk back of box at 90 euro. as it happened i had the box to myself as did the next two boxes. covent garden is always full and hard to get tickets so please support la scala.

we have three big houses in europe - london, paris, milan and we need them all - they help each other with co-productions etc. the artistic pyramid is fragile and depends on vast philantropy.

We were limited to the seats available (they sell very quickly), I purchased 2 seats online (the theatre’s own website) 4weeks before the performance but best seats I could get were £75 each for top tier, centre. The seats gave a good all round view but impeded by a safety bar (look over or look under)! Tickets I wanted were for seats £300+ but apparently these sell out within moments of going on sale. I went to see Verdi’s Atilla an opera I wasn’t familiar with but I’ve never seen anything staged better.

I hope you try for tickets, take full advantage of the theatre including drinks etc at the interval.

Bought the tickets some time in advance, registered on La Scala site and booked through there. Tickets were instantly available to print out. We had the two front seats in a box towards the side of the stage. Whatever you do, don't make the mistake of buying the cheaper tickets - 3 and 4 which are situated at the back of the small boxes. You wont see much

I was very lucky I bought a balcony box ticket for 90 euro, which gets you one of the second row in the box. As it happened I had the whole box to myself so sat at the front.

Tickets are easily bought online there are even tickets available for la trav with what could be placido last performance.

Yet Covent Garden tickets are pretty much sold out.

Apologies... but the tickets as soon as they become available as they sell out fast. I bought mine three months prior.

I was in the “platea” near the middle aisle, in the middle of the theatre. You can purchase the tickets on line and prices vary based on what you are seeing and also, where you sit. I went to the Christmas concert and my tickets were 170 euros each. Ballet is less expensive usually.

Sorry for late reply. I was on my trip to Central America.

Buy only first row on the balcony. I don't remember price, but everything depends on a show. Ballets cost more, opera a little bit cheaper, unknown events very cheap. Just try to buy first row ONLY ! and One more order online directly from Theater website as earlier as you can like as soon as you get tickets for your trip! Good luck and Enjoy.

Sorry for the late reply but I have been traveling in India. Our tickets were booked direct from Box office on the day of performance in Milan- we only saw a recital so tickets were £40 - main operas cost a LOT more

We bought tickets online.. on the morning of the release, 4th of January for 6th of Feb performance of La Traviata. We bought tickets for 10 EUR for the Fifth gallery.. the seats were not so good as you had limited view of the stage.. from some angles you couldn't't even see the stage. If you buy in advance you can get tickets for around 40-80 EUR depending on the view you are aiming for.

However.. La Scala should be visited if possible.

If you want the best of seats then book in advance and pay about 300€, but if you just want the experience then go there early in the morning and you can book spare seats at very reasonable prices

We bought tickets online. Very expensive, 300 euro each (because it was a last-time decision). But it is possible to get cheaper tickets if planned accordingly. The sound is fantastic, so you will hear well everywhere.

Hello,

plan ahead is better, because every tourist would like to go, sometimes you just get lucky with the price, but it's expensive!

Try online ahead first and also try to have a go at the afternoon tickets, or even try outs. Enjoy!

We basically bought the most expensive tickets to be ensured of a great view. They were around 300 i think... Also ordered online weeks ahead - we planned weekend around it. Cheaper Seats dont always have good view. In the boxes were Also Seats behind us... dont think these people saw a lot of What was happening on stage. It is a old theater...

Can't remember the seat nos but stalls about half way down, aisle seat and the one next to it. Tickets 300 euros each - you have to pay extra for ordering online. We got them a month or so before we went
