Great authentic Italian experience! My Boyfriend and I went on our last night in Venice it was a great was to end the trip!!
Such a fun experience. Perfect to opera new comers as there isn't the stiffness of a large opera house. The protagonist are within touching distance and literally sing to you. With the baroque style rooms and the quartet who would just need to wear some white wigs you feel as having gone back in time.
We went to check out the location during the day while meandering through the many narrow streets of Venice and found it a bit tricky to find, as it's situated in a tiny alley with just the name engraved on a door bell. A hidden little treasure chest .
Excellent experience. Its a shorter version that is performed about 1:45.
Never attended an Opera before so first time experience was amazing.
This took a bit of finding on the web as well as a tad hard to find in Venice-- I recommend finding the Palace in the light then going for the evenings performance. Yes, there is a sign but it is not obvious. All of that said, it was an intimate, relaxed and innovative operatic performance. The performance is held in a private home and both the actors and audience move to new vantage points and rooms with each act. Each night it is a different Opera. We saw Rialotto.The intensity of performance was exhilarating. For a couple in our group this was their first opera. They were overwhelmed. Opera now stands a a new performance art for them. I believe this was one of the highlights of our vacation
This is a must do tour! Alessandro was so informative, funny and passionate about her work. From the kosher food we had at Gam Gam, the wine and chichetti, homemade pasta and gelato was excellent. Do not eat before! I learned so much on this tour. It felt like a night out with friends. Bravo!
A most unusual set up in the impressive Palace venue. The Acts moved from room to room with the audience. Very close and intimate performance in amongst the small audience of around 70 people. Very polished performance and one we shall never forget.
very different experience. fantastic voices in an atmospheric palazzo!
WOW! Is there any better way to experience an opera than this?!! My wife's ears had not released the pressure from flying into Marco Polo airport and we were worried she wouldn't be able to hear well enough. HA! The performers are often so close that you could reach right out and touch them, hearing was no problem and these performers are worth hearing! One huge recommendation that I need to share with my fellow Viator travelers is to be sure to read online the story of the opera you are about to experience to help bring it to life with understanding. Also, be sure to give yourself plenty of time to find the location as it is not obvious: a sign on a building in the open square just as you are coming over a bridge does point the correct direction...keep walking toward the Grand Canal and there will be an alley-way to your right that leads to the door to the house. Authentic, personal Venetian setting with extremely talented performers make this tour is an absolute must when in Venice!
A wonderful experience, not to be forgotten. Stunning house on the Grand Canal high painted ceilings, silk lined walls, candlelight created a fabulous atmosphere along with beautiful singing and orchestra who were all outstanding Everything ran like clockwork. Highly recommend this trip.
