The Scuola, which was built like a church, is covered - 2 floors - walls and ceilings -with original paintings by Tintoretto. All paintings are original and in original locations.

Really amazing paintings and the history behind them is well worth the extra money you have to pay for the audio-guide.

Do not expect a Grand Auditorium, it is a hall with raised stage. A really good price for a very enjoyable evening by singers and musicians who put their all into delevering a memorable performance. My only complaint was it had to end! Review is based on the eveing of Baroue and Opera programme.
