The Cure for What Ails You

Living in Milan with a crazy and hectic schedule, it is easy to forget about all that the city has to offer. Who has the time and the energy at the end of the day to go out and enjoy the rich cultural offerings that the city offers?

This month, however, I have had the opportunity to see both the musical Mamma Mia at the National Theatre and L’elisir d’amore by Gaetano Donizetti at La Scala. Leaving the quality and my opinion of the productions aside, I left the theatre revived and full of energy.

I would definitely recommend a night out at the theatre to help anyone forget about the trials and tribulations of day-to-day living in Milan. There is nothing like seeing live performers to reawaken our spirit.

Milan is full of theatres- big and small, world famous and not- and it is possible to see many productions in the original language. Go out and enjoy Milan; rediscover yourself.
