“Traditional Italian Opera House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

We were in Como for a James Taylor concert and enjoyed every minute of the concert and everything about the Teatro Sociale. Even though our seats were along the side at the very top of the opera house it was still a wonderful experience. We had to lean over the rail to see, but from our vantage point we had a true bird's eye view of the stage.

“Gorgeous historic venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

We went to Teatro Sociale on the 25th March 2012 to see James Taylor.
The venue is absolutely gorgeous, one of the nicest venues I have visited. The seating is a mixture of Stalls in front of the stage and boxes. The seats are plush red velvet, fairly wide and very comfortable. Teatro Sociale has a very intimate feel which was perfect for our concert, we were in the third row from the front and we had an excellent view. There are a few small public car parks near the venue with pay and display machines. The venue opened it's doors 40 minutes before the start of the concert so that we could collect our tickets from the box office.

“Wonderful theatre, brilliant opera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

Whilst in Como we went with friends to see a production of Nino Rota's Il capello di paglia di firenze. It was a night to remember - beautifully directed down to every last detail. This production team is one to watch - I gather they are going to several other locations with this production. The theatre itself was beautiful and the staff helpful and friendly.
