Accessible Opera, as though it was in your sitting room, but its a palace in Venice. Stunningly personal. Fun fun fun with 3 light and easy Operas to choose, 7 nights a week. It will make so many people's trip to Venice even more memorable.

We went to this see the Barber of Seville here a few years ago. We still talk about it now and recommend it to all of our friends that visit Venice.

We watched "La Traviata" in the musica a palazzo and we were amazed. The venue is one of the oldest palaces in Venice. Rooms are in excellent condition with all the decorations on the walls and ceiling. The play was amazing with majestic opera voice from all. Not to be missed. Lee thought it's over priced 75 euro per person... More

Not a big fan of opera, but to see this small scale performance in a small group setting in a old Ventian Palace was a great experience. Little hard to find entrance, Follow yellow sign from bridge, go down walkway and take the right hand turn to the end.

Our concierge recommended this when we asked about opera. We were a bit skeptical about the whole idea - doing a grand opera in a set of small intimate rooms, as well as what quality of the music and the singing we would get. We were enchanted by the entire experience. The intimacy completely changed the opera experience - I... More

The opera was absolutely fantastic! My wife almost cried at the end. It was in Italian but it was relatively easy to follow the storyline. The opera was held in a very small theatre that only held about 50 chairs, many of which were spread around the room. The show engaged the audience as props. It was really engaging, and... More

Booked the opera on my birthday which we were celebrating in Venice, we had never been to the opera and decided to book this as a treat. We both throughly enjoyed the evening and had an amazing time. We watched La Traviata and the actors and musicians were excellent. I am so pleased we booked this and it was a... More

While not a big fan of opera this is a must do experience. You almost feel like you are getting a private performance in a home. You are close enough to really see the expressions on the performers faces which adds so much to the performance. As others have said - leave early to find it. We decided to take... More

I am an occasional opera fan and my wife is generally disinterested in opera. However, this is a very different experience from the usual 1000 plus seat opera house. The large venues can be magnificent, but this is different and intimate. Tickets should be ordered in advance. The place is not far off the beaten path but it is tricky... More

We love opera and this venue certainly intrigued us when we read about it on TA. Not sure how professional it would be (we thought maybe a bit touristy?) but it was wonderful. We chose LaTraviata as it fit our schedule the best but any of their offerings would have been great. As advertised, the three acts took place in... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
