In a city that is home to one of the world's oldest stone amphitheaters in the world, dating back to the first century AD, how could one not take in an Italian opera? The incredible acoustics of Verona's Arena have been home to some of the world's best opera performances for literally, ages. Tickets and performance information is available on their website for all to enjoy, as there is not a bad seat in the house.

There are several major theaters in Verona. Teatro Romano, like the Arena, is outdoors but on a smaller scale. The theater is home to classical music performances and theatrical plays, including from time to time, Romeo and Juliet.

Teatro Nuovo, as its names suggests, homes the more modern world of theater. Light theater is a popular performance here.

The Philharmonic Theater offers more opera shows and classical symphony performances. For cabaret style entertainment, there is Teatro Estravagario.

Once you've had enough of the classics, stroll the Piazza Delle Erbe and environs to find live music in a local bar; live music is usually easy to find.
