The Teatro Carlo Felice Opera House was inaugurated on April 7th 1828 with the opera "Bianca e Fernando" by Vincenzo Bellini. The original project was made by Architect Carlo Barabino. Unfortunately, during world war 2nd an incendiary bomb destroyed the Theatre. On April 7th 1987, the foundation stone of the new theatre was laid. The new architectural project was created by Ignazio Gardella, Aldo Rossi and Angelo Sibilla. The artistic season 1991/1992 was the rebirth of the new theatre. Since then artistic seasons including operas, concerts and cultural meetings have been held.

We went to see Carmen. Instead of setting it in a cigarette factory in Spain with bandits in the hills, it was set in a Cuban cigar factory with followers of Che Geuevara and Castro in the hills, with old posters and a Cadillac as props. The music was good and a couple of the singers were excellent.This matinee performance... More

If you are planning an Opera tour of Italy dont forget to see this "state of the arts" facility. I went there for the Verdi's Otello in Januray 2014. Simply the best Opera performance I have seen in Italy in that period.

I happened to go into the theatre during our recent visit to Genoa to enquire about their operatic programme. There were no suitable performances for our dates, but the very helpful lady in the information office recommended we attend that evening’s free performance by the symphony orchestra, with guest conductor Maurizio Billi. I don’t know how often free concerts are... More

We went to see and hear Verdi's La Traviata. Although I thought I was ordering the tickets well in advance, I was wrong and we had high seats. Even with the less than the best location, the performance was greatly enjoyed. Bravo.

I also attended Turandot last dec. 30 (nice performance, isn't it?). I really enyojed the opera and the theatre. Living in Milano I often go to "Scala", but it's too expensive. My places were in the first rows. The price is reasonable (74 euros), the acoustic and the sight is excellent, seats are confortable. Everything (lights, machinery) worked perfectly on... More

We were able to see Turandot from the balcony (galleria) and it was a good balance between price and experience. I checked out all the seats in the main area of the galleria and except for the first 2 rows the sight lines were fine. Do not expect to see much from the balconetta seats running down both sides of... More

I have been to Teatro Carlo Felice several times for the opera, ballet and performances by the symphony orchestra, with the most recent visit yesterday for the opera, Turandot by Giacomo Puccini. I’m no judge of the acoustics, staging, or the technology that provides for an excellent production, but I have always enjoyed the many offerings at the theatre and... More
