Could not get access inside but the building looked fantastic, spoilt a little by some banner protest from the roof.

But looks beatiful, in the square where the Teatro is, young people gather to play music and enjoy the night. Don't miss it!

This is one of most beautiful corner in Catania. Located few steps from Piazza Duomo and Via Etnea, it's a quite impressive building. We only had a look from the outside but if you got time I really think it worths to spend some to visit it. Guided visits are available. The view even from the outside is something special.... More

Teatro Bellini itself is a glorious homage to a period of symphonic and opera greatness. Dressed in its Barogue architecture, overstated roccoco design the hall is a marvel of sound and beauty.

We just arrived in Catania and wandered on its streets. Impressed by the beautiful facade of the Teatro , we discovered that a Ballet Gala Performance was inside, but it began a 30 minutes ago. We were completely amazed when , the manager in charge hearing and seeing our disappointment offered us a couple of tickets as his guests !... More

Would probably have been good if we were allowed access but for some reason we were not allowed in. We were extremely disappointed as this was something that looked really impressive in the guide books.

As with other reviews, it was closed.....architectural gem. Shame it's in Catania where the graffiti is second only to Belgrade in Europe! Why don't people care about their town!

A historic opera house and concert hall, on a street named after Maria Callas, though it is hard to find out online what is playing, and impossible to purchase tickets online. Go to the box office once you arrive in town, and get whatever tickets or performance that are available. The above average acoustics and the classical design and decoration... More
