Absolutely wonderful! Not an opera fan, or at least I didn't think I was! So entertaining! Incredible musicians and singers. Definitely a lifetime experience! Actors having fun with the musicians and audience adds to the comedy, would recommend to everyone!
In the early days of opera, performances were presumably given in the private homes of rich patrons. Elaborate staging came later. So the Musica a Palazzo style has authenticity as well as vitality, hilarity in the case of the Barber of Seville anyway and a high standard of acting and musicianship. Being so close to the 5-person cast and 4-piece orchestra made the experience very different from sitting in the middle of the stalls in a theatre. It's expensive, but we thought it was worth it. After trying to think of a reason to knock off a star we ended up giving it the full five.
Loved it. Great way to be introduced to Opera.
This was an excellent experience and a very intimate performance which moved through 3 rooms of this 15th Century Palazzo with the intermission with complimentary prosecco in the salon facing the grand canal. All of the La Traviata performers were amazing. Go if you get the opportunity!
Loved it. Such an atmospheric place to listen to opera - and the the whole production was excellent
What a fantastic event! In a small venue, with the audience sitting in the same room of the mansion during the show....moved from room to room and enjoyed the show so much! Would love to see another show this way!
This is without a doubt one of the best things to do in Venice. Highly entertaining and in a beautiful venue. This was my husband's first opera - ever - and now he is hooked. This is opera in a small setting so even novices will get the storyline and nuances. We saw the Barber of Seville performance. Truly outstanding.
In the better late than never category, this was our favorite activity we did in Venice in September 2015 we saw The Barber of Seville . We love opera, and what a great experience to see one in a 15th century palazzo! Of course, there are no supertitles, but they do give you a booklet with the translation. We are thus glad we had seen this particular opera before, but with the translation and the overview in the booklet, combined with the singers and being so close to them to get the facial expressions and emotions, it was easy to follow. The only downside is the signage to get there - we are glad we left enough time to find it before we had dinner. We then found a nice restaurant nearby so we could relax, knowing that we had enough time to get back to the venue and not get lost. The palazzo is down a narrow alley on the right after you find the correct narrow canal. But so so worth it to go!
Best experience, just like going back in time and sitting in the ball room of a Palace and watching a professional performance and then changing rooms for the next act and so on, just amazing.
It was a great performance, The actors all were wonderful. Some people say it was hard locate the venue but it is actually very easy to find. Definitely we will go again!!!
