The Musica A Palazzo is a unique experience! La Traviata performed in a restored mansion in Venice. The setting is in three rooms, one for each scene of the opera. Seats less than 100 in audience, so everyone is close or even in the performance. The rooms are sets with seats in the action as well as rows away from... More

This was one of my favorite activities while in Venice. There were live musical groups. One night there were three battling bands.

What a wonderful way to spend an evening in this romantic city! Being in this magnificent, though slightly shabby, home made it more special. The musicians and singers were simply superb in this drawing room version of The Barber of Seville. How nice to be served champagne or water at the intermission!

The singers were young and in good voices. The size of their voices matched the size of the rooms. We were taken to three rooms and saw about 3/5 of the opera. (They cut don Basilio.) Everyone was enthusiastic. I would recommend it to music lovers.

Musica Palazzo is one of the most amazing experiences I have had. Only 70 euro per person which if you think about it is value for money bearing in mind for cheap tickets for other Operas can be up to €140. The musicians and singers where amazing and being so close to the action meant you could see the raw... More

This is a unique experience. The location was tricky to find but totally worth it. The performers were first class and it's almost as if you are part of the performance. Wonderful!

We aren't really opera fans, but couldn't resist the temptation to attend an intimate opera in a former palace. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would strongly recommend it. Make your reservation directly on their website and bring 70€ cash to pay for the performance.

This is not to be missed. Book in advance as each performance is limited to just 70 people. You need not be an opera fan - this is a musical, art, architectural experience for anyone. Transporting!

Yes it was a bit expensive but we found we were relaxed a refreshed after 45 minutes with a pleasant drink and club sandwich listening to the music and watching others passing by.
