La Scala, which has balanced its budget for the last seven years, this year expects to receive (EURO)30 million from the state, or 26 percent of its (EURO)116 million budget. Italy’s most self-sufficient theater, La Scala expects to generate (EURO)72 million on its own through ticket sales, sponsorships and licensing agreements. Box office for the first time is expected to exceed the government’s subsidy.
Lissner said La Scala would remain a public theater, and that the changes did not signal privatization.
