Saw Traviata at La Fenice in September 2014. Go same day last minute and tickets in 5th row were 50 euro instead of 190 euro. I see a lot of opera and this was superb. Was surprised by how intimate La Fenice is -- no bad seats. Very close. Excellent sound. Young, attractive , talented singers in modern dress. They... More

We splurged for two box tickets to see La Traviata, the opera Verdi premiered in La Felice. We were so thrilled to be there and had such lovely seats, it made up for the fact that the opera was in modern dress (only mildly disappointing) and that not all the principal singers were fabulous as we'd hoped. I would still... More

We booked months in advance for a performance of Verdi's Il Travatore at this magical theatre in Venice. The theatre itself is mind blowing. It is a must see. Just magnificent. The performance we saw was sensational, with a fantastic cast, and a wonderful orchestra conducted by a youthful Daniele Rustioni (opera lovers keep an eye out for this young... More

Didn't have the money for an opera ticket but I wanted to see it very much after reading The City of Falling Angels by John Berendt. The tour is self guided with an audio head set. I enjoyed it- such a beautiful building. They said it's 3 euros to be able to take pictures, but I saw everyone clicking away... More

We went originaly to just see the theater, however we lucked out by getting last minute inexpensive opera tickets to see the opening of La Traviata. This will be one of my most memorable experiences in Venice.

Although our third time of listening to La Traviata, but our first at La Fenice, we were delighted with the performance and elegance of the renovated Teatre.

The exterior, the people, the champagne and the beautiful people. Absolutely a once in a lifetime experience. I had a good seat in one of the booths on the first floor. The Soprano playing... More

As she has several times! It's an absolute joy to visit this grand old theatre. The stage is phenomenal! The decor sumptuous and elegant beyond belief. A must if you're in Venice.
