Seeing this opera was quite a unique experience - intimate setting in a historic building with the singers and musicians so close to the patrons. Moving around from room to room was also interesting, as well as the drinks served during intermission. The opera is in Italian - so f you don't speak the language, it's probably best to research...

If you've never attended an Opera before, you'll love this experience! The actors/singers and musicians are literally a few feet from you and what's extra special is when they interact with the audience. Moving from one incredibly beautiful room to another was also an added bonus. Outside while I waited I enjoyed seeing gondolas passing by and since I arrived... More

This was on my wishlist when i arrived in Venice - i was lucky enough to get a ticket 24 hrs in advance as i was travelling alone. It was tricky finding the location and i wandered around a bit looking for the entrance -which is at a dead end and poorly lit. There is a small sign on the... More

This is a absolutely wonderful night out it gives you a venice experience that just going out for a meal and sightseeing just wouldn't do, the intimate setting is Fabulous and barber of Seville was fun enough for groups or children , I went with my mother and son first time then in a group of friends the second time.......

Having never been to an opera before we wasn't quite sure what to expect but we both enjoyed this very much. We saw The barber on Savil which was witty and the small setting made you feel more a part of it. The program is a must for anyone not speaking Italian as in gives you word for word what... More

We brought our kids ages 12 and 10. It was the first opera experience for all of us. The length was perfect, with two short intermissions, good. The setting was intimate, which was wonderful. Depending on where you sit, it can be a bit hard to see from the back, so do rush in when the doors open to each... More

We saw the Barber of Seville and absolutely loved it. The singers and musicians were so talented. The location was a little hard to find and we were glad we scoped it out during day light ahead of time on one of our walks through the city. I only wish we could have seen another performance while we were there.... More

The Opera was performed by 4 singers in 3 rooms of the Palazzo. The performers and the musicians were simply excellent and the settings and candlelight enhanced the scenes. At one interval a free drink was offered - prosecco, soft drinks - even peach juice, so a Bellini could be made. Served in a room overlooking the Grand Canal. A... More

We were unsure if we wanted to go but so glad we did. Go!!! You will not be sorry! It is best to book ahead of time via the internet - also allow plenty of time to get there as the place is very hard to find...I should had taken notes so I could pass them on...but of course didn't... More

Sit in the same room as the Opera stars and musicians in a romantic, quiet palazzo on the Grand Canal. I think we would not have wanted to spend 3 plus hours at a full opera, but the 90 minutes for Musica a Palazzo was perfect. The water taxi pulled us up to a dark little landing right in front...
