If you are planning an Opera tour of Italy dont forget to see this "state of the arts" facility. I went there for the Verdi's Otello in Januray 2014. Simply the best Opera performance I have seen in Italy in that period.

We were able to see Turandot from the balcony (galleria) and it was a good balance between price and experience. I checked out all the seats in the main area of the galleria and except for the first 2 rows the sight lines were fine....More
