Owner description: Accessible Opera, as though it was in your sitting room, but its a palace in Venice. Stunningly personal. Fun fun fun with 3 light and easy Operas to choose, 7 nights a week. It will make so many people's trip to Venice even more memorable.

“Opera for opera lovers and newbies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

I consider myself an opera novice, but found this to be very approachable. The movement between rooms within the Palazzo kept it interesting. The content was all in Italian (which I do not speak) but the program gives you an overview and line by line in English. The Palazzo is very nice, albeit a bit worn out. the only real complaint are the uncomfortable chairs.

“Great for first opera experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

My husband & I very much enjoyed La Traviata. It was Robs first opera experience and was pleasantly surprised at how easy the story was to follow. The place is tricky to find!

“Must do for opera lovers in Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Wonderful evening - our soprano was sublime and the other cast members were excellent - stunning surroundings to experience the music in and great to know that you are supporting the restoration of such a fine building - refreshing take on opera.

“Good fun but musical performance not the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

The setting in an old palazzo was fun, and moving rooms gave you the opportunity to get a better view. We saw La Traviata and there were a few wobbly moments.
