We went after reading about this on trip advisor. It was perfect for a night out in Venice. Go early and do not be shy about grabbing the couch seat on the set.

Imagine a run down palazzo, down an almost impossible to find alleyway. The doors open at 8pm. No more than about 70 seats are available. You enter. Your brochure tells of a fascinating history of a glorious building, now sadly declining. Then the introduction tells us we about to enjoy an opera in 3 rooms. La Traviata was ours. Performed...

Intimate setting, beautiful voices, amazing venue... and champagne! What's not to like? An enjoyable evening for both opera lovers, and those who are still learning to appreciate it !

Watched the Barber of Seville. Nice setting in an old palazzo. 3 part opera in 3 different rooms done with humour. Great entertainment for 70 euros. I highly recommend the experience for a different night out in Venice.

Although the venue was a little out of the way, it was a beautiful palace and well-suited to the performance we saw. The actors ran the whole thing, welcoming us into the performance and instructing us which room to move to as the opera progressed. The performance itself was absolutely hilarious and brilliant as a first opera.

Great operatic performance in this lovely old Palace. Musicians and singers were top rate, a glass or two proseccos during the intermission makes a wonderful evening. It is a bit awkward to find being down a dead end dark alley.

We so enjoyed watching the opera where we could almost touch the performers. The building is beautiful and the performers are excellent.

I went to see Barber of Seville whilst in Venice- it was a truly amazing experience! Held in a gothic Venetian palace in a tucked away secretive location overlooking the Grand Canal at night- the audience experiences opera in an intimate setting, moving from room to room with the performers. With a 360 degree view and close interaction- no one... More

Thanks TripAdvisor, we found this through TA and it was great. A unique experience, opera singers belting it out right next to you! The acting and singing was top notch and very stirring considering we are not opera fans usually! We saw La Traviata, and hummed it the whole of our holiday. Great memory.

Great performances by all concerned and very funny. The venue is a little difficult to find but we went the previous day to recce the area as we were in the vicinity. The water bus stop normally to use was temporarily closed and so this did not make life simple but we found it eventually. Not a cheap night but... More
