Why Arena Di Verona Summer Opera Festival?
Imagine a life where you could stroll the most romantic streets in the world, admire the famous balcony where Romeo wooed Juliet, and watch opera in a two-thousand-year-old Roman amphitheatre. Sound like your idea of heaven? Mine too!
Between June and September, the stunning Arena di Verona will be the setting for the most iconic operas ever written. And if that’s not enough - there’s also the finest ballet performers, classical music concerts and gala-nights. Yes - the Arena Di Verona Summer Opera Festival.
Whether nineteenth century Seville is your bag or whether ancient Egypt and China are more your cup of tea - the world’s most stunning amphitheatre will be transformed for Verdi’s La Traviata, Nabucco and Aida, plus Puccini’s Turandot; the latter two helmed by famed Italian director, Franco Zeffirelli.
German tenor Jonas Kaufman and living legend, Plácido Domingo will be singing their huge hearts out, and there's an extravagant Stars of Opera gala-night, to boot! If ballet is the dance you dance, you'll want to experience Roberto Bolle and Friends perform for two nights only, while classical music fans are in for a treat with Beethoven's Symphony No. 9.
What's so special about the world's best Opera venue?
That's a rhetorical question! With La Traviata recently polling as the world’s most popular opera (populopera?) tickets will be selling like hot cakes. So if you want to hear Nessun Dorma as it was intended, under the perfect, open evening air of Northern Italy... you had better act quick - before the fat lady sings!
