Although the modern dance performance I saw there did not fit the space very well, the theatre itself is wonderful to see. They also offer a tour, but they were not offering it on the Thursday when I was there (so check the calendar if you want a tour!)

We arrived very early and went in as soon as it was open. It is a beautiful theatre, so ornate. Well worth the money, lovely little tour.

Staff were really not friendly. A lady in the counter almost ignored and skipped me and served others first, but bought a ticket with patient to go inside. Nothing was explained where i go from here. Moved to place where I can borrow the audio guidance, the young guy sitting there was really not helpful at all. As soon as... More

I only took the audio tour. I would have appreciated being able to take some photos (I am a very discreet photographer) but was not allowed to. The audio tour is extensive and fascinating. The interiors of the Opera House are exquisite. The second burning down of the Fenice (arson) is largely glossed over, as it took two public inquiries... More

Incredible production of Stravinsky's 1951 opera The Rake's Progress. If you are traveling to Venice you can order your tickets online in advance or show up that day and see if any seats are available. I splurged for a box seat and it was totally worth it for this once or twice in a lifetime experience. Arrive early so you... More

Beautiful interior, lots of history but very uncomfortable seats..We've seen several operas at La Fenice for the past five years. Quality is acceptable but nothing outstanding. Personally I think it is more like an expensive tourist trap.
