I went to my first opera - Dido and Aeneas - here in September. Spectacular performance full of the unexpected - including a large water tank containing submerged ballet dancers. More of a combination of music and ballet than I had expected. To be fair, I didn't really like the music that much - although the actual singing performances were... More

The theatre is quite small and the seats are close together. On a very hot summer's day the heat in the auditorium was quite stiffling. The pasta buffet is a bit quirky. Not enough for a meal but if you eat first you hardly need a plate of pasta. Although we booked and paid in advance no seats are allocated... More

I have been to dozens of performances at the Teatro dell'Opera, sometimes alone, and other times accompanied by college students. One of the best was Verdi's "Sicilian Vespers," a relatively rarely-performed opera with one gorgeous melody after another and a complete ballet. My students, who had never been to an opera before, loved it, and so did I. Of course,... More

Visited Rome in early May with my girl friend and stayed at the Hotel Quirinale which is only a few minutes walk away from the Opera. We went on the last night of our stay to see the Ballet 'Le Parc' which was wonderful and featured music by Mozart. Fantastic experience that I would recommend - 'when in Rome'

We had tickets for a gorgeous production in this beautiful opera house. We loved our time here. The house is in pristine condition. As with most older theaters, choosing your seat is very important if you want to actually see the whole show. We highly recommend the boxes to the rear or the theater or in the corners. There were...

Unforgettable experience in this stunning venue. Amazing production quality of the opera and much luxe and grandeur are felt inside the main performance hall. Splurge for the balcony seats. Only complaint is that is quite warm inside. Worth the experience for sure.

1) Dress code--on a non-opening week-day, the dress was smart casual to semi-formal. I was comfortable in nice jeans and sneakers. 2) No program is handed out, but there are posters on the was that outline the length of each act and how long the intermissions are. For La Traviatta, there were 2 thirty minute intermissions and one 15 minute... More

A must go in Rome. Maria Callas used to sing there Abd there is a reason for it. Beautiful interior decoration in the pure style of a classic prestigious opera house.

Opera-istas are raving about the new production of La Traviata at the Teatro dell'Opera in Rome. It is directed by Sophia Coppola, with costumes by Valentino. So imagine our excitement when we got tickets for opening week! Online, we bought “first balcony” seats (Box 13, seats 5, 6, €105 each). We attended the May 27 performance, but never saw the...

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
