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.

This was new to me - a theatre designed for eating and watching opera! We had a table in a box and enjoyed a typically Roman dinner. Wine was extra but reasonably priced and service was absolutely excellent. Pudding was served at the interval! We saw "La Traviata' which was simply staged but superbly sung. A great night out!

For a surprise for my husbands 50th birthday I had booked one of the boxes with dinner to see La Traviata. What an excellent choice. A beautiful charming theatre, a very enjoyable set meal and a wonderful performance of the Opera. Excellent value for money in a beautiful setting.

Saw the Effecto Tango production which was avant garde and thought I would prefer the tango traditional, but thoroughly enjoyed this show. The performers were talented and very attractive and the pasta buffet though not impressive but a nice extra.

La Traviata. Small production, but lovely result. Tiny space for the orchestra. But all together was excellent experience

We booked online to see La Traviata, not being an Opera Buff we weren't sure what to expect, but we really enjoyed it. The theatre was just off the Piazza Spagna, a stone's throw from the Metro station. Its a small intimate theatre which made the experience all the better, the staff were really friendly and there was even a... More

I bought tickets for the front section of the theatre online before I left home. Download your tickets and swap them your proper tickets at the box office. The theatre was lovely. We didn't try the pasta, but I did have some gelato during the break. It wasn't free tho as some reviews have said, it was 5 euros. Seats... 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.
