Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

We saw the performance of La Traviata at Teatro Salone Margherita in Rome in September 2014. The theater was small, beautiful, and historic. We did not opt for the dinner ticket however the pasta that was served at intermission was scrumptious and unusual. I have never been to a live performance where food was served at intermission. The theater was... More

My family and I enjoyed an evening of dinner theater type opera performance of "Barbieri di Seviglia". We took the box seat with dinner. The dinner was better than I anticipated, but the seat was actually poor with limited view. Any of the orchestra seats should be better than the box seats. The singers were generally good and the small... More

What a great little opera theatre located near The Spanish Steps. We saw The Barber of Saville which seemed perfect for this boutique small theatre. The performer were good, enjoyed their work and even engaged with the audience. For € 35 per head I head including a plate of pasta at interval what more could you want. The staff were... More

We saw The Barber of Seville in our own private box seats! This theater is beautiful, all marble and red velvet drapery, exactly like you'd expect in Rome. The performance was lively and enjoyable the orchestra - perfect. Dinner was served to us before and between acts. The night was completely magical, the music the atmosphere, the service, the food...

A must stop if you are in Rome. This theatre, the staff, the performances, the atmosphere was all outstanding. It was truly entertainment when this was how entertainment was meant to be. The musicians and performers kept you in awe. We even went back for a performance later in the week and thought about a third time but we're leaving... More

Really friendly place. I have been listening to opera for nearly forty years I really rate this place. It gave my latest visit to Rome a little something special. I watched La Traviata 10/2014. Carmela Maffongelli was truly amazing. Pitch perfect! Such a welcoming place to all.

My husband and I went to see Barber of Seville our last night in Rome and it was wonderful. I bought tickets online for the front section and the seats were amazing. The singing was good and the acting was great, the audience and the cast had a great time. There was a bar right next to our seats and... More

In Rome for 5 days after lovely jazz tour (started in Monaco). Wanted to hear Verdi. No opera next door (we're twenty steps from the Rome Opera.) Walked past a theater near the Spanish Steps and decided to try it. Truly wonderful — this is the way La Traviata was heard around the world for one hundred and fifty years... More
