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.

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

We saw La Traviata in this lovely and atmospheric theatre and the couple of hours just passed by in a magical haze. The staff in this theatre are simply charming and we wish we would have been hungry to enjoy the complimentary pasta, as it smelt wonderful, but we did partake of the "Gelato" which was everything Italian gelato should...

I saw Verdi's La Traviata here in this quaint little Italian opera hall. You can choose to purchase tickets for the show including a full course meal, or do what I did, and chose the best seating area, no meal, (I was on the front row and made friends and chatted with the violinists in the orchestra), but was still...

This venue is about a nice a place as you could wish for; small and intimate with a dish of Pasta included. The production we saw was Verdi's La Traviata. I've see it before once in Covent Garden, many moons ago then, sat on a box in Soho pub a couple of years ago both excellent in their own way... More

I took my daughter to this theatre to see her first opera - La Traviata. The performance was very good and I was particularly impressed with Alfredo and Violetta. The orchestra was superb. The theatre itself is charming in an art deco way. And for 30 euros including a tasty pasta dish before the production, it was excellent value.

I went to this venue twice in one week. On the first occasion, the cast performed La Traviata. The theatre is a sweet, old fashioned venue. The ticket was reasonably priced. They offer a free pasta dish from a buffet before the performance, but nobody told me this when I booked or when I picked up my ticket, which was... More

The concierge at our hotel couldn't make contact with the theatre to make a booking for us for the Opera 'La Traviata' as the theatre's phone and computer were out of order. We, therefore, decided to try our luck and go there ourselves to see if there were any tickets left. Luckily tickets were still available and we had an... 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.
