At the very last minute we were able to secure 2 tickets to see the ballet, Swan Lake, at La Scala. We dressed in our nicer casual clothing and waited outside the opera house for the doors to open at 7:30, and they did! We went and found our seats. We were on about the fourth level up along the front edge, toward the left side of the stage. At 8 the performance began and the house was packed. Every seat was taken. The ballet was spectacular. There were 12 curtain calls. My husband and I had never been to the ballet before, and we loved it. We were captivated by the dancing and the story. There was a small intermission and we could not wait for the dancing to begin again. The opera house is quite a special building. The acoustics are fabulous and we could see quite well despite the fact that we were quite high. Tip: you can get standing room seats but the performances are long and its hard to stand. If you go to a higher level get a seat along the edge where you can lean forward and rest your arms.
