Surreal = watching a 140 year old opera set in 3rd millenium BC while sitting in the actual 2000 year old arena while a modern jet liner flies overhead. The opera experience in Verona is so Italiano -- totally over the top!! HUGE scenery changed out every night. Must be over 600 performers! Not to mention the arias, the orchestra and the special effects -- like flooding the stage and floating a boat across it. We reserved early expensive tickets which were worth it. But if you have time and the ability to purchase general admission, the view from the top would be extraordinary and much cheaper. Our only regret -- that we didn't book two nights and see Nabu the next night. Tip: Take your own wine in in a water bottle.
