Description:

Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name...

Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name Margherita was a clear homage to Margherita of Savoia, King Umberto's first wife.

Here typical vaudeville shows were presented to flaunt more luxury and refinement than in any theatre in Rome. In the '10s, the best comedians and the most searched soubrettes of the age appeared in the playbill of the theatre and, throughout the past century, it has been a theater attached to the revue, Roman comedy, vaudeville show and operetta.

Since 2011 I Virtuosi dell'opera di Roma performed here an important part of their Concert's Season.

We were handed a flier about this opera house and La Traviata. Spur of the moment decision yo go and it was one of the highlights of the visit. Not too expensive, didn't have to get "dressed up", easy to book tickets, light buffet dinner served before opera for the mid range seating - could have had a full dinner... More

We payed 80€ for the box with dinner. The venue was beautiful inside although rather uninviting from the street. The food was average but hit the spot. Having been to many operas the performance of Traviata was excellent for such a small cast. Would thoroughly recommend this intimate venue.

I saw 'La Traviata' here in July and it was a fantastic show. The theatre is very quirky and I loved it! The most unusual part was getting a place of delicious pasta when we arrived (included in the ticket price!)

This was my first time going to the opera, we saw La Traviata and I thought it was amazing. The facility is not too big and the sound of their voices is simply majestic!!! I had goosebumps through most of it.

Highlight of our trip to Rome, €80 euro each which at first seems very pricey but got us a private balcony, 5 course meal with bread and water, and of course La Traviatta in a beautiful old theatre. Food was delicious, not massive portions but very tasty and spread out over the acts. We got a bottle of prosseco to... More

Let's begin. We are not opera buffs. However when in Rome... This was very much a spur of the moment decision, but very much worth it. We chose a box with dinner included. The theatre is intimate and beautifully proportioned. As this was last minute only one box was free, closest to the stage. Not the best view but you... More

The theatre is delightful, quite small and intimate, beautifully decorated. Our ticket included a buffet, which was perfectly adequate but go for the more expensive box with dinner for the gourmet option. The singing was excellent, set was minimal but it's a small stage. Costumes and dancers were marvellous. It worked perfectly well. Violets' acting was a bit wooden but... More

We saw LaTraviata in this beautiful dinner theater. We chose to have the buffet which was really not a buffet. We had a choice of 2 different dishes. Both were decent. The show itself felt a little amateurish. The costumes were beautiful, but the set was lacking as were some of the actors. I was hoping for something a little... More

My wife Penny and I visited Teatro Salone Margharita on our trip to Rome in June 2016. We had a 4/5 course dinner in a private box overlooking the stage. Two Courses were served prior to the show starting and the main courses served during the interval. The desert and coffee we served after the final curtain. The theatre itself... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
