lovely opera in Turino

Had the chance to convince our sponsors to treat us to an opera in Turin. Had the great good fortune to see a very well staged and sung opera. What a treat. Hall was lovely.

We really looked forward to the tour as the interior is so good, but for non Italian speakers was very disappointing. You really are doing your own tour with an independent audioguide. It was a very long 90 minutes - could have been shorter or we could have gone on our own - 30 mnutes would have been plenty of... More

After the original opera house was destroyed this century the local authorities commissioned this impressive building to house the local Opera . Opera is very important to the people of the area and if I am correct Verdi was born and lived in nearby Parma and Toscanini lived there etc etc, so to see a performance of either of these... More

We visited the Teatro for the opening night of "William Tell". The performance was outstanding. The orchestra led by Gianandrea Noseda was brilliant and the three leads were outstanding- in particular Jihn Osborn as Arnoldo I think the theatre is very attractive- it is modern but elegant. The impression one gains is sitting in a friendly "cave" with stalactites falling... More

The exterior of the Opera House does not prepare you for the fascinating modern auditorium within, but this works very well with the single general seating area rising from the Orchestra Pit to the rear in one long sweep. There is a single circle of boxes. We were lucky to be at the front of the seating area and cannot... More

The Teatro Regio is one of Turin's greatest entertainment location. Opera here is brilliantly and lavishly staged. There are supertitles in Italian, There isn't a bad seat in the house. Comfortable, great sight lines, easily accessed. Classical music is also great here, with wonderful acoustics and a broad stage for orchestra.

We'd hoped for a baroque, overblown, fabulous opera house and were a bit disappointed by the rather lacklustre design of the Teatro Regio. Having said that, the acoustics are wonderful and that is what we go to the opera for. The production we saw (Barber of Seville) was lavish and the audience appreciative.

We attended an enjoyable concert during the MITO festival and heard the Torino Orchestra and Chorus under their Music director, Gianandrea Noseda. Our seats were about halfway back in the stalls and the view and sound were very good. The interior has some lovely chandeliers and interval refreshments were good value.

The Teatro was a great find in Torino. We weren't looking for it and we just happened to walk by. It has a very nice small museum and I recommend this stop to everyone.

even if you don't the chance to attend a show, join one of the tours to see the inside of the magnificent work of architecture. It is like a time travel to the 70's. Guided tours are available twice daily, you need to get tickets from the ticket office.
