Saw my very first opera here recently - wow what an experience! The theatre alone is worth seeing as it is simply beautiful, very ornate and regal. The opera was amazing, beautifully preformed. Although our view was slightly restricted this did not hinder our enjoyment at all. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering attending a production.

This exquisite building is must see even for those who don’t like the opera. It is a splendid house, luxury and atmospheric, with some stunning details. The house has survived several fires and arsons, but it is back to its full glory. A night at the opera, it was “La Traviata”, was a perfect ending of a wonderful holiday...

We attended the final performance of La Traviata on Thursday Sept. 25th, and it was spectacular. The cast, the orchestra, the staging were all magnificent. We ordered our tickets directly from the on-line box office and decided on the Platea area (the orchestra seating) because it was raked and we got row N, seats 14 and 15 (two in from... More

This is a chance to go to the opera without going to the opera. This is a self guided tour you are given an audio phone And you walk around the lobby,theatre,halls and reception rooms. The theatre is gorgeous and you see it from the orchestra level as well as the royal box. Worth the time and money if you... More

La Traviata a la Fenice. Some voices were excellent, others mediocre, but either way, it remains a fabulous experience for any opera lover. I would be back tomorrow if given the chance!

This is really worth a look - beautifully restored theatre with a fascinating audio guide, which you can follow at your own pace. I now need to return to Venice to see a performance there.

Wonderful, intimate theatre recreated from the ashes, after a fire in the 1990s. You wouldn't know! Brilliant musicians and the opera was fun, a crowd pleaser, a comedy by Puccini.
