Owner description: This world famous opera house, burned to the ground in 1996, has been rebuilt amongst much scandal and drama: its modern beauty and complex history ensure its place among the most celebrated monuments in Italian history.

We had read John Berendt's, The City of Fallen Angels so made the Teatro La Fenice on top of our must see list in Venice. We were not disappointed. We went early on a Sunday afternoon. There was a set being constructed for a Tosca performance that afternoon. So enticing that we came back later in the week to see Tosca. Interesting there was fire fighting officials on site during the performance just in case. They are serious about preventing another fire burning down this beautiful structure.
I must say, I had never seen an opera before we visited Venice. I am now hooked.

Exquisite venue for the Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore. Not quite as good as at Covent Garden but nevertheless was well produced, sang and performed

Cost 9 euros which included an audio guide detailing the history of this lovely little theatre. You also get into the auditorium and the royal box. Well worth a visit.

I went to see La Boheme with my 20-year old daughter in May. The theater is a spectacular opera house, to rival any in Europe. We studied the libretto in advance and were thrilled to find that there were English subtitles above the stage. Everything about the production was amazing - singers, acoustics, and stage design. I should also point out that the theater is very easy to find, which we were delighted by, since we got lost trying to find anything else. I highly recommend an evening at the Teatro La Fenice.

Beautiful theatre, we were in a box, 4 seats 50 euros each for the front 2 seats and 10 and 5 Euros for the next seats behind. The view was great . small theatre so we could see the whole 70 piece Philharmonic orchestra. Perfect!
