Unique experience if you appreciate non traditional settings. Intimate setting. Highly recommend.
This is a must see private show. We absolutely loved it and loved the exclusivity of it. The performers were top knotch and so talented. Highly recommend!!!
The Barber of Seville was very entertaining. The performers looked like they thoroughly enjoyed entertaining us, engaging the audience which was nice and small. The venue was very quaint and I loved being able to move throughout rooms of the beautiful building. I really enjoyed the musicians as well, they were very talented and professional and the pianist was very animated and entertaining. I highly recommend this style of opera.
I pre-booked through Viator to see La Traviata and only wish I'd booked earlier so I might have also seen The Barber of Seville and Rigoletta My favourite opera on other nights!
It proved a little tricky to say the leastto find, so do make sure you suss out the back streets in advance if possible. Even the locals and bar staff didn't know the address. However, once there we were greeted by lovely hosts. It was a wonderful venue with professional, attentive staff and excellent customer consideration. The guide book is handy to have for those not familiar with the opera story lines and translation notes make it good value at 5 euros.
Anyway, to the evening, and what a delightful, joyous evening is was for me.
I've been to the opera many times but LOVED the intimacy and setting of this venue. It is a beautiful building. Moving room to room was enchanting and worked well, making it more interactive and intimate. But of course, the main thing was the performances. And WHAT PERFORMANCES they were! In particular, Natalia Roman, Soprano, as Violetta was sublime and moved me to tears several times. I would say world class.
If you enjoy opera you will love an evening at Musica A Palazzo. If you're not acquainted with opera, expect to be converted. An absolute joy to attend and without doubt one of the highlights of my trip to Venice.
This is an event not to be missed! To move from 1 beautiful room to another in this palace, sitting there, so close to the actors and musicians was truly thrilling, almost magical! Seeing an opera in such an intimate setting makes it come alive, and more understandable, in my case, Rigoletto. I would recommend reading a bi-lingual libretto in advance. A great experience!
One HUGE problem was finding this place in freezing cold, rainy weather, in the dark of night!! NO REAL ADDRESS IS GIVEN and NO ONE KNOWS WHERE THIS PALACE IS! Viator, please give a specific address and perhaps clear directions for locating it, for example, the closest vaporetto stop, visible cross roads and closest bridges.
This is the second time we've attended Musica a Palazzo in Venice and it's an up-front-and-personal experience that should not be missed. We brought along a friend who is not an opera fan, but even she was enchanted by the beauty of the palace and the production.
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!
