Description: Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name...
Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name Margherita was a clear homage to Margherita of Savoia, King Umberto's first wife. Here typical vaudeville shows were presented to flaunt more luxury and refinement than in any theatre in Rome. In the '10s, the best comedians and the most searched soubrettes of the age appeared in the playbill of the theatre and, throughout the past century, it has been a theater attached to the revue, Roman comedy, vaudeville show and operetta. Since 2011 I Virtuosi dell'opera di Roma performed here an important part of their Concert's Season.

If you love classical music then don't miss a performance at the Teatro Salone Margherita. We had our five course dinner served to us in our box seats and what a treat that was. The performance was fantastic,very professional and of world class. The Italians certainly love to sing Italian opera.

Do not be fooled by the seductive photos on the website. The photography appears to have been staged with to sell you tickets that you may regret buying. We paid 70 Euros per person and walked out after a few songs that were painful to listen to. The singers seemed to be depressed and desperate for a job. Both the... More

Went here for my 50th birthday, family of 3, bought tickets online on theatre website, no booking fee €35 each. Probably could have got away with €25 tickets as the theatre is small, approx 250-300. Open seating for each priced section. Free pasta was okay, drinks a little on expensive side. Opera was fab, La Traviatta by Verdi, cast were... More

I booked this as a bit of fun for Liz and me. We have never been to the Opera as we are more rock and roll lovers. However, we are so pleased we did go to this. The theatre was quite beautiful and we had a drink before it started. The dramatic nature of the four performers drew us into... More

Went with a friend to our first opera la traviata. We bought 25 euro tickets and have to say it was an excellent performance in an intimate theatre. Really enjoyed.

We like opera so booked the €70 a head dinner in a box with great expectation. We entered the small theatre and were immediately struck by an overwhelming aroma of damp even though this was mid summer. We were shown upstairs to our table at around 7.45 when the doors opened and soon realised that 4 of the 5 courses... More

Difficult to know how to describe this place. It is a theatre that presents opera to about 200 patrons downstairs, but you can book to have dinner in a box upstairs and it really is good value (at 75 Euros per ticket including the dinner) Obviously drinks are on top, but they are not that expensive. We went and saw... More

If you like opera and want to experience an intimate performance, this is the theatre to go to. We attended La Traviata by G. Verdi. It was a captivating performance. The orchestra is right with you (no orchestra pit). The traditional pasta offering before the performance was interesting and fun.

Rather geared towards tourists. This said, the place is really beautiful and they give you a taste of famous operas - with a wonderful cast - both the opera singers and the live orchestra. From July to September, performances almost everyday, either "I virtuosi dell opera di rome with Enchanting opera arias" or the "la traviata". A pleasant evening, in... More

Attended the show as a group of two couples last night. Very high standard of performance by four singers and small orchestra who performed with enthusiasm despite the heat and the 3/4 empty house. However show was short, just under an hour in total. We took the dinner and show package in a first floor box. Tickets 70 euros each... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
