Teatro Litta – Milan
Teatro Litta is Milan’s most ancient active theater. Located in the heart of the city, it occupies one of the wings of Palazzo Arese-Litta, whose construction dates back to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Today, Palazzo Litta, with its highly decorated 18thcentury facade, is considered one of the most representative examples of Lombard Barocchetto and until the end of the 1800s it remained one of the city’s liveliest cultural, political and economic centers. Indeed, the original theatre was built by the aristocratic Litta family to entertain their guests, and owes its fame in part to the sumptuous receptions and celebrations that took place there.
The theatre also boasts a spacious lobby and an elegant café, which combine Baroque architectural elements with ultra-modern furnishing. The theatre is set off the Cortile dell’Orologio (“Clock
Courtyard”), a fascinating location for outdoor events.
For all these reasons, it is the perfect main venue for our operas. A true, original court theatre.
