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.

Went there for my birthday to see "Il barbiere di Siviglia" and I really enjoyed the decorum, the play itself and the acoustics in this old, beautiful house.

I can't say I know anything about opera, but I do know that this beautiful, intimate experience created a priceless memory for my wife and I. The spectacular palazzo, the beautiful music and the voices of these singers made for an unforgettable experience. I recommend Musica a Palazzo without reservation at three times the cost. Reserve ahead via email and... More

This was a wonderful experience. The signage to get to the palace is very poor and the alley way is dark. On a stone pillar half way down the narrow canal, a small handwritten word with an arrow points to the entry area where you must ring the bell and be buzzed in (if you are arriving much earlier or...

I totally recommend Musica A Palazzo. We were a bit skeptic about this new opera concept, but the only thing I can say is that we loved it. The interaction between the singers and the public, their amazing voices, the beauty of the palace.... everything was perfect. We saw Il barbieri di Seviglia. Go in advance to get a better... More

My husband surprised me with this musical evening. We are not lovers of opera, but it didn't matter. We 'experienced' La Traviatta. Guests sit around the room, as if you are truly part of the play. In the first scene (a party) we were given glasses of Prosecco by one of the 'guests'/actors as he sang. For each new scene/act,... More

We couldn't find an opera playing at La Scala or La Fenice, so we booked this instead. If it hadn't gotten good reviews, we might have thought it was a scam--provide us with your personal information to "join our club," and then pay us in cash. It didn't engender confidence! I'm glad we weren't scared off. The singers had quite... More

We went for a refreshing take on Rigoletto based on the recommendation from our hotel staff and we were not disappointed . Important to say this was our first live opera show and we knew no Italian except for a few words and therefore bought the translation booklet at the event . We were a bit apprehensive but for nothing,... More

When my daughter and I decided to visit Italy and France last year my only request was that we had to attend the Opera. Jill is what you would call a 'seasoned traveller' so she knew all the spots to check out experiences. We booked it well ahead of time so when the night finally arrived I was more than... More

This was our first experience of opera and I can highly recommend it. The setting is so intimate and the surroundings so stunning, it all adds to the ambience of the event. We saw La Traviata and were totally amazed at the unique and amazing way in which the story is told. The performers themselves are fantastic and really bring... More
