Very uncomfortable Box Seating
Oct 2019 • Couples
The theater is lovely and the production of Aida excellent. The box seating is extremely uncomfortable. Ours was crowded with 5 persons and only 2 or 3 could see very well. If you attend an opera here in a box, go in and take seats early to get the best views. Seating in each box is first come first choice of seats.

great

The theatre is located in a fortress, once the castle of the Pallavicino, founded in the 1200s. Previously there had been another theatre in the exact same location, where Verdi had performed in his youth.

Beautiful site
Jul 2018 • Solo
This site can be visited only with a guide, and the tours are in Italian. There is an English guide sheet for English-speaking visitors to take along on the guided tours. The side was nice, though, to answer some of my questions in English after the tour. The little theater is truly quite beautiful and worth the visit if you're an opera buff.

Memorable performance, beautiful and intimate theater
Mar 2018 • Couples
what a special place- this small theater offered elegance and intimate setting for experiencing opera. our box included seats with obstructed view, but we rotated locations so all could take in the full experience. most importantly, the performance was beyond expectations- top quality music from an animated conductor, creative choreography and spectacular voices (supported by building acoustics). this is not Teatro alla Scala grandeur, but a memorable experience in a lovely town.

Fine Opera in Verdi's birthplace
Mar 2018 • Solo
Though Busseto is a very tiny town, we travelled the almost hour to get there and the performance did not disappoint. We saw La Traviata - a modern version set in the 1970s or 80s, well-sung, well-acted, and well-costumed.

The theatre itself is a beautiful heritage site with classic red velvet chairs.Old, not refurbished. If you are in a box, the seats are not numbered but first come; best seats, so best to arrive early. Doors open a half hour before and it's well worth it to be early. The latecomers in the boxes may be sitting unable to actually see the performance, while as an early bird, I had the prime seat, at the balcony, facing the stage. Breathtaking spot!

It's an intimate theatre, and a fantastic site for opera. The orchestra plays right below the stage and from the balcony boxes, there are excellent views of both the stage with the talented singers and their equally talented musicians.

Short Visit ,Sleepy Square
Oct 2017 • Couples
We stopped here while on a tour. Giuseppe Verdi lived here and there is a monument to him on the square. This was a rest stop for us but we had over an hour to explore the area. It was very quiet and not too much activity. We bought sandwiches at a local deli and had some gelato at another shop. Many of the stores were not open. The small square had benches where you could sit and relax.

Cool place if the performance is right
Nov 2016 • Couples
I was here in October 2013 for the 200th anniversary of Verdi's birth and there was a wonderful concert at night in which a tenor and a soprano, a real Diva from Russia, sang several of his most famous arias with a nicely put together orchestra. It was an absolutely lovely night, a great tribute to the maestro, and afterward, everyone including the conductor and the two fabulous opera singers went down the street for pizza and vino.

Visit this even if no performance on
Aug 2016 • Couples
This is the magnificent intimate Opera Theatre built by the citizens of Bussola during the lifetime of Verdi as a tribute to him. But Verdi didn't want it built and refused to visit it. Don't do this if you're in the area. A gorgeous little they're so full of history.

Interesting details of Verdi's relationship with the Teatro
Jul 2015 • Couples
The theater was not as impressive as the background information on Verdi's relationship with it. It seems he was not in favor of the original construction and saw it as only a booster for the community. More interesting was the home of his mentor located across the piazza from the theater. We bought a ticket that included both and a tour of his boyhood home in Roncole' Verdi about 5 kilometers away. All three were very interesting and not crowded.

Lovely
Jul 2015 • Couples
A very helpful guide took us round the interior of this delightful 19th century theatre. It is described as 'a little bon-bon', an apt description. Holding an audience of only 300, it is intimate and beautifully decorated. Well worth a visit.
