[Autom. eng. transl.] The essay analyzes the contribution of the noble classes to the organization of theatrical life in Milan in the second half of the eighteenth century, when the Ducal theater presents opera seasons with stability and continuity, in which the proposals for playful dramas and dramas are distinct. In addition to the manager responsible for economic management, the archive documents show the presence of aristocratic figures in charge of acting as Superintendent or Director, with direct responsibility for public order within the theater building and with the task of verifying the cast hired. The wedding of the Archduke of Austria in 1771 was the occasion for decidedly courtesan shows. From the contracts examined, the attention of the Viennese court highlights the balanced economic management of the theater.
