The theater seemed to be in a process to be remodeled or close down, since we saw some signs asking to help to keep it. From the outside it looked really nice.

Worth going to see this building. Nice architecture but unfortunately not displaying its full splendour as very dirty building.
Very nice at night time as on a very nice square in the lively bar area of Catania.

Vagabonda and others reassured us we would get tickets a the booking office and we did with the sconto of 30% as non residents. The price was about 30 euros I had paid the same price for a Puccini with a reduced orchestra last year .
OK the box office took ages to open but that got us talking with the other opera lovers all Italian. The teatro is bello outside but inside it is even more beautiful. The rooms outside the auditorium you must see and during the intervals go and buy your slice of pizza watched by the statue of Bellini and in a very grand room. Then go to your box and see the beauty of the stage and auditorium. The acoustics are some of the best in Europe. We enjoyed Tosca the orchestra were brilliant and in full view of us. We shared the box with a lovely Italian student The teatro was full of students and schoolkids who behaved impeccably throughout. Not like the old folks home Covent Garden can sometimes resemble.
