“Alway's an Enjoyable Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Built in 1798 in the castle of an Italian queen, the elaborately baroque theater was moved to the Ringling Estate in the 1940's, just as it was about to be torn down. Here it was reassembled and served as the home for the Asolo Theatre Company until the troupe outgrew the ornate, gilded playhouse. The new Asolo was then built on the property and remains open for touring. It also hosts art films, theaterical plays, lectures and other programs.

Perhaps one of the best regional theaters anywhere. Take a look at their playbill and be amazed at the breadth and dimension of their top notch productions!
