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.

The hall was packed to hear Abdullah Ibrahim caress the piano non-stop for almost 2 hours, an experience to be remembered. The acoustics is excellent, the theatre beautifully elegant. It hasn't dated in all these years since it was opened in the late 70s (if I remember correctly). The spacious external areas lend themselves to meeting people and wait comfortably... More

Saw four performances of Verdi's Don Carlo here. The theater is modern but elegant. The musical director Noseda is an excellent conductor with a strong but pliable baton. Solo singers were generally fine and the chorus was excellent. Stage designs, sets and costumes were appropriately elaborate. Orchestra was very fine. Almost every seat in the house is a good one...

We went to "Il matrimonio segreto" and it was absolutely good. The opera house is not very impressive, but it's always nice to visit a new opera house when travelling.

We visited the operahouse for the first time last weekend and we were favourably impressed. We saw Norma and the acoustics were excellent. It is a well conceived open plan theatre with a wonderful feeling of space. The orchestra level is quite spacious and raised appropriately. There is one box level above the orchestra level. It is well organized for... More
