MILAN, Italy, Oct 2, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Dancers at Milan, Italy's La Scala opera house are threatening to strike because their dressing rooms are too small.

The famous Italian opera house underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation and reopened last December.

The dancers, however, say were squeezed out in favor of musicians and their dressing rooms are now too small, the BBC reported.

The strike would affect 10 performances.

The season is scheduled to open Dec. 7 with Mozart's opera, "Idomeneo."
