    The Great Beauty
    Wonderful, fabulous, fantastic!!! Magnificent opera sung on the most beautiful terrace in Rome with aperitif snd nibbles. This is an unbelievably magical experience for anyone visiting Rome. If you do nothing else, do this. It is beyond compare. Even if you don’t know opera, you will love this evening experience. A once in a lifetime moment for us.

    Great event in Rome
    This was truly a great way to spend a few evening hours while in Rome and enjoy some beautiful Opera music. The selection of songs and melodic voices as well as the views of the city from the balcony and the rooftop bar were wonderful. The team was also incredibly warm and accommodating. We hope to get a chance to attend another show next time we’re in Rome.

    BEST EXPERIENCE IN ROME!!!
    The experience of the Open Air Opera at Terrazza Borromini with dinner was an event of a lifetime for us!!! We would give it a 5++++ rating if we could. It is such a unique experience, even if you are not an opera enthusiast. From the moment I first contacted Paola with some questions, she gave special and undivided attention to our requests. This was a 40th wedding anniversary for us, and Paola truly made it a moment in time we will never forget. The opera with aperitif was filled with emotion and the wine and food flowed. The time on the rooftop before dinner was enjoyed because it was not so crowded as the rest of Rome is. And then the dinner afterward, overlooking Piazza Navonna... well I just can't say enough. So I hope the pictures will say a bit more. Grazie Paola for making this THE BEST EXPERIENCE we had in Rome. We would recommend it to anyone and everyone who comes to Rome for a special and unique time. We will return when we come back un giono! Grazie Mille, Rosemary e Rosario!

    Amazing
    My husband and I had an amazing time! The view from the rooftop is beautiful, the dinner was really good, and the opera spectacular (only 10 people, intimate and romantic). I am glad a booked it, I was unsure because when we go on vacation we do not bring formal attire, but I emailed Paola and she said that casual/elegant would work. This opera dinner was one of the highlights of our trip and it will remain in my memories.

    A perfect evening
    Out of all the many outstanding opera productions and opera concerts I've experienced, this is the one I have enjoyed the most. The warm and personal welcome by Paola set the scene for talented singing by Paola and Francesco Antonio, with piano accompaniment by Massimiliano, taking us through a programme showcasing some of the most emotional and beautiful arias and duets from the Italian opera, with just the right amount of introduction and explanation. All this was perfectly complemented by the elegant rooftop setting on a warm, sunny evening. To feel that these amazing arias and duets are being sung just for you is an amazing experience and one to fully savour and appreciate in the moment. I chose this to mark my birthday and it was the perfect way to celebrate. Two hours of sheer joy.

    Super Opera Aria evening above the crowds at Piazza Navona
    This was a birthday present for my wife and it was a spectacular, most enjoyable evening. The location high above Piazza Navona was unique, the weather was kind and sunny, the aperitivo was tasty and the singing by Paola and Alessandro was top class. We should not forget Massimiliano’s excellent accompanying on the piano. It was especially helpful for Paola to provide the right amount of context for each aria to enable us to gain maximum appreciation and enjoyment. This was our second Roma Opera Omnia event and we look forward to our third next time we visit Roma. Bravo a tutti!

    Heavenly concert along with incredible bone art
    After a brief visit in the church, we headed to the crypt which housed four rooms decorated with bones mostly belonging to the Capuchins and one additional room without bones serving as their small chapel. The rooms with bones are incredibly interesting containing thousands of bones arranged as works of art. Each also contains the mummified remains of some of the monks. Afterwords, a concert with four singers performs religious songs through the ages. Listening with eyes closed is a heavenly sensation ending our unusual but definitely worthwhile experience.

    A very beautiful and emotional experience and on occasion brought me to tears.
    This event was in my bucket list and I came with little or few have expectations but the rendition of Claudio Montervedi's "Si dolce e il tormento" by Paola Alonzi simply blew my mind. I will take this evening with me as an unforgettable and moving experience and one which typifies the Renaissance and Baroque periods in those days. There are songs in the repertoire which are equally good if not better and the hour long session which included a tour of The Princess secret apartments was truly awesome considering this was in the 16th to 17th century.

Paola, thank you so much. This was the first time that I have seen live opera and my spine was tingling throughout the entire experience. I’m glad I brought my sunglasses as my eyes were filling up with tears at the beauty of the performance (I’m genuinely not the soppy type!).

Very well organised event, the views from the venue are stunning and like no other you will see in Rome. Aperitif and wine were delicious. I was a solo traveller and instructions on where to meet were clear.

Paola had even put flowers out for me as I was the only one attending solo - so very thoughtful and very appreciated.

The opera itself was stunning. STUNNING. Paola provided a description prior to each performance which enhanced the experience significantly as you fully understood the emotion behind each piece.

This was my last night in Rome and it was the perfect way to end my short break. It was my birthday a few days prior and after just mentioning in passing I had a song dedicated to me. I took a few videos for my memories and I can’t watch them back without feeling very emotional! From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for such a beautiful time. I will be back in Rome just for this!!

Late start, rather mediocre "aperitivo" (by quality and quantity), rushed performance. Song quality: Soprano 3,5/5, Tenor 3/5.
The venue was very cramped and the singers performed way too close to the audience (too loud, occasionally eardrum-piercing). During the second half of the performance, about half the audience faced due west, straight into the setting sun which was both blinding and scorchingly hot at 30 degC.
Way overpriced!!

Dear Ivo, we sincerely apologize for not being able to fully meet your expectations, and we appreciate your review. There has been no delay; you probably confused the admission time with the start time. The Terrazza Borromini, located in the historic Palazzo Pamphilj, is one of the most beautiful in Rome and offers a superb view of the famous Piazza Navona. We are pleased to offer our audience the opportunity to enjoy the view and take photos freely before the start of the concert. The food, including the wines you sampled (3 glasses plus a glass of sparkling prosecco for the final toast with the artists) is a selection of Italian enogastronomic excellence. As you can see from the photos and videos, not only ours but also those taken by the audience, the quantity is very generous, even though it's an aperitif and not a dinner. Our artists perform in international opera theaters and, of course, possess a professional-level voice that allows the audience to immerse themselves in a much more emotional and intimate dimension of opera. Despite the particularly hot summer, the terrace is sheltered by a canopy, typically ventilated by the Roman "ponentino" breeze, and we also offer parasols for those in need of additional protection. Regarding the price, you purchased through a third party that applies fees over which we have no control. That's why we always recommend buying directly from our website, as we are the organizers of this unique experience, often described in many reviews as the most beautiful during a stay in Rome. We hope to have the opportunity to provide you with a more satisfying experience in the future Best regards Paola

The idea is great but the execution is mediocre. Expect average singers struggling with the range, duets trying to sound like duets and a limited repertoire. Overall it's an overhyped expensive event.

Dear sir / madame, we thank you very much for this review. It gives us the opportunity to clarify the aspects to which you refer. The duration of the concert is 60 ' but the public accesses our event already 45' before the concert, with the possibility of entertaining themselves to take photos and videos on the only terrace in the historic center from which it is possible to admire Rome at 360 °. The stay on the fabulous terrace "The great beauty", in the reserved table, is therefore almost two hours. At the end, we also offer the opportunity to visit the Borromini terrace, on the magnificent Piazza Navona. We are sorry that you have given up this opportunity, coming only for the concert. The musical program, which is the heart of our event, offers the most famous and exciting arias and duets of Italian opera, as can easily be verified in the official program published on our and on Viator website and is performed by artists who perform in the best theaters of international opera. The food and wine offer, which consists of a rich selection of cured meats and cheeses, two glasses of wine and a third glass of prosecco for the final toast, is another source of pride for us, as it offers a choice of typical and of high quality wines, selected from the excellences of the most renowned Italian productions. Ours is therefore a premium event, aimed at a limited number of participants who want to live a truly unique experience in Rome. We look forward to having you with us again! Best regards Paola

Wow, What an amazing experience! I cannot recommend this event enough. The singers are incredibly talented and when they sing it literally puts goosebumps on your arms and makes you tear up their voices are so beautiful. A charcuterie board and wine is offered at the event and they are quite engaging with the small audience. If I could give this more stars I would. It was literally one of the best nights of my life.

What a delightful evening! This event was recommended by a friend and we are so glad he did. The atmosphere was very intimate and special. The performers, Paola and Francescoantonio, had beautiful voices that were perfectly suited to the evening’s selections. The pianist, Tei, was excellent. The wine and antipasto was very good also. I highly recommend this event while you are in Rome.

This was such a beautiful and unique experience. We’ve attended their concerts in the past in Rome - but this one as an open air concert overlooking Palazzo Navona will be hard to top. We even attended a zoom Christmas music event during the height of the pandemic that was wonderful. We admire Paola who organizes these events and is the wonderful soprano.

Friday evening, February 17, my wife and I witnessed a fantastic opera performance at Terrazza Borromini, Sala Innocenzo X, Piazza Navona, with soprano Paola Alonzi, tenor Francescantonio Bille and pianist Taehee Kim. It is a very special and powerful experience to be able to listen to such outstanding opera artists from three meters away. I would highly recommend this incredible show.

We wanted to do something a little different for my wife's birthday, and celebrating it with great music over the Piazza Navona is something we'll never forget. Paola & Francesco put on an amazing show in a great location - if you are not an opera lover when you go you will be by the time you leave. Highly Recommend!

I highly recommend the rooftop opera with aperitivo hour. The location is just off Piazza Navona with a wonderful view of Rome. (Not a full 360 panoramic, but it is nice.) The performers were wonderful and it was quite an experience to hear Italian operas being performed in Rome. The seating areas are very comfortable and I recommend at least business casual attire. They say to arrive 15 minutes before the start of the concert, but I would show up a little early so you can enjoy the aperitivo items before the performance starts. If you are looking for a unique experience, I highly recommend this performance.
