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.

A special anniversary treat, "La Traviata" was ours...for one night! Set in an old run down Palazzo, accessible down a dark alley, the evening started with a mysterious undertone. On a stone pillar half way down a narrow canal, a small handwritten word with an arrow pointed to the entry area of wrought iron gates where you must ring the... More

Fantastic performers, lovely voices, virtuoso musicians. My wife and I enjoyed this night well beyond my expectations. The place was a bit difficult to find at first, its entrance is not grand, and tucked away in a narrow alleyway, however once you enter, you realize it's a real palace - someone's former place of residence and a real authentic Venetian...

This was the highlight of my trip! I went to see "La Traviata", an opera I know very well, performed in a gorgeous Venetian Palazzo, which was the home to the Doge's before they built the Doge's palace! Not only was the venue beautiful (don't miss the ceilings by Tiepolo), but the performance was excellent! You are so close to... More

It would be a shame to miss having this experience while in Venice. Four different operas are featured on different nights of the week. We selected The Barber of Seville because not really opera buffs, we thought this condensed version would be fun and lighthearted - it was great! The palace is hard to get to as mentioned, but once... More

Take a fading, ancient Venetian palace with an incredible history of its own, combine it with a very good music society, and you get Musica a Palazzo. There must have been no more than 60 in the audience, the quartet sit with you and the operatic performance takes place around you. Each act is performed in a different room in... More

Having never seen an opera before I wasn't quite sure what to expect, however it turned out to be a lovely evening. We saw La Traviata and enjoyed in immensely. The location is a beautiful palazzo. Between acts they serve wine (for free!). It's different from a traditional opera but is a lovely way to spend an evening.

We saw La Traviata at the Musica A Palazzo. The opera was beautifully sung with each act being in a different room in the palazzo. It was an intimate setting and you really did feel very much part of the production. During the first intermission, there were refreshments which were most welcome as the first room was a little warm.... More

Beautiful music and singing in a very intimate environment in an old palazzo. We enjoyed following the actors from one room to another between the acts. It was a great place, even though a bit tricky to find, just like everything else in Venice.

Amazing venue- you rotate through different rooms in an actual privately owned palazzo after each act. The performers are only a few feet away from you so it feels like you are right there in the scene with them! Talent was excellent. We saw La Traviata - I was prepared to leave after the first or second act in case... More

I was afraid it would feel like a tourist trap, but I thoroughly enjoyed a small scale reworking of La Traviata: 3 singers, 4 players, great atmosphere.

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.
