the sun sets and the light plays with the stones of this majestic Arena, as this place that the coasting along. Side show, with the sunset, the first accents shows me why I love Romeo and Juliet. This version enchants me, that modernism in the staging is not without recalling the version directed by Baz Luhrmann in 1996 scenario Michel... More

Tonight's performance of "Romeo et Juliette" at the Arena di Verona is a travesty. Vittorio Grigolo and Lana Kos created the title roles with great commitment, chemistry and beautiful voices. That is where the evening's magic ended. The production is simple horrific. Keep in my that I appreciate both traditional, new-concept productions. "R&J" is a classic, universal tale that can...

We watched Madam Butterfly in the arena and it was breathtaking. It was easy to just buy tickets on the day - we bought the cheapest on the stone steps - and just had the best view. The steps can get a little uncomfortable by the end so if you can take a cushion I would advise it! if sitting... More

I really enjoyed being outside and inside the arena, cost of getting in was €6 but I guess the price had a lot to do with the fact a stage had been set for opera show, we were so gutted that there were no shows that night as it would have been amazing to have watched. The arena is no... More

We stopped off in Verona for a night, and couldn't miss the chance to see a performance. We paid €26.50 each for a space on the stone steps in Section D to see Carmen. The view was unbelievable and it was amazing to watch the opera as the sun set and night fell. A truly unforgettable experience. However, it's also... More

We have attended at Aida rappresentation on august and we have been very lucky: the climate was perfect after a hot sunny day (even a little cold at end of the show). For a reasonable price (about 30€) you'll be granted access to the upper stage of the arena during the spectacles with no fixed seat: here's the tip. The... More

Aida on the 10th August 2014.! One cannot question the sheer spectacle of the arena as it fills up for the performance. As night falls , candles lit and the moon over the stage cannot fail to impress. That said things then went downhill, the performance did not do justice to the venue. Very wooden performers, little movement and to... More

4 visits to Verona with 11 operas in Arena and still not getting bored with the atmosphere of the Arena, quality of the performances and it all! No use to pay for expensive tickets, section E priced 22-28€ is really good if you arrive early, have a cushion with you and get seated to the scene-end of the area. Best... More
