No reviews, be the first!

Music lovers planning a trip to Rome would be smart to check out the schedule for the city’s opera house, the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma. The 19th century concert hall, originally called Teatro Costanzi, seats 1600 and is home to performances of Rome’s opera, ballet, and orchestra.

The austere exterior of the building gives no hint of the ornate theater inside – it’s what you’d expect from a classic opera theater, all red velvet and gold trimmings. In addition to the seats on the floor of the hall, the walls are made up of four storeys of those velvet-lined theater boxes, each with its own private entrance at the back. It’s enough to make you feel like you really ought to be wearing a period costume and powdered wig.
