We saw La Traviata here last week. Excellent performance and great seats in the balcony at a very reasonable 25euro. Try to get there early as seats are not allocated when booking. The pasta at the interval was a lovely treat. Didn't understand a word of it but enjoyed it immensely!

After never seeing an opera before decided to go and see la traviata at this small theatre. The lead female singer to play the role was excellent. The orchestra were very good and the theatre itself was quite cosy. They served pasta in an intermission which we thought was strange looked ok smelt like tomato soup we didn't partake as... More

You will be able to tell your friends - we watched opera in Rome! One morning we said our hostess that we did not find online opera tickets in advance. That evening we watched La Traviata in Salone Margherita! Very elegant little theater with good singers and performers and small orchestra (no more than 20 musicians). Soprano Carmela Maffongelli (Violetta... More

It was more of a 'thing to do' when in Rome instead of must see in Rome. The singers were fine and they provided entertainment. There was even an intermission with free pasta! We don't get that in Canada and so the free food was definitely a plus! The place was not packed, lots of empty seats.

We had a nice time here. It is a small but beautiful theater. We went to see Traviata. The show is simple...way to simple I can say....it is not translated into English or other languages, si this is a big minus as it is very hard to understand what they are saying. They served us pasta but the dish was... More

'When in Rome' as they say, we thought there would be no better place to see an Opera than in Rome. We thoroughly enjoyed the Opera Il Barbiere di Siviglia at this theatre, a great preformance in a gorgeous little theatre. We turned up on the day and got in (not sure you could do that a peak season so... More

We went to see La Boheme last week and it was magnificent. The male lead, we felt, took a little time warming up but he and the female lead were outstanding. Mimi got the best applause, as usual, and the ovation became standing. I thoroughly recommend this theatre; the pasta was a bit mushy but it was a really nice... More

We visited opera for the first time on our visit to Rome. I wanted to see La Traviata and found this small theater almost by mistake. La Traviata was so amazing and soprano was so amazing. I recommend this theater to anybody who wants to see opera. We will definately go there again. Remember to go there on time because... More
