Accessible Opera, as though it was in your sitting room, but its a palace in Venice. Stunningly personal. Fun fun fun with 3 light and easy Operas to choose, 7 nights a week. It will make so many people's trip to Venice even more memorable.

Beware! This is not the intimate experience you may be expecting. The singing was very good but this was marred by the fact that the seating is extremely uncomfortable and that there are far too many people squeezed into each room. In fact, for the second and third acts we could not even see the performers. Expensive tickets and very... More

I attended a beautiful performance of La Traviata at Musica A Palazzo while staying in Venice. It was a unique experience in the way that performance was conducted in three rooms. The performance itself was passionate, elegant and overall, great. I had a nice time, though had to attend alone as my family(my young child) felt very tired to attend... More

The quality of the music was generally excellent although the third singer (male) was less impressive. The lead singers had both been trained for a bigger stage and their voices were overpowering in the more intimate setting. The quartet which accompanied the singers were superb. The opera did suffer from the lack of a chorus which provides a variety to... More

Despite initial hiccups with booking and reservation, the level of professionalism and courtesy on behalf of the organizers was nothing short of perfect. We watched the opera The Barber of Seville, the opera is preformed in old house and you move between the rooms for the different acts. The show is interactive. To sum it all up... Great musician great... More

I will be the first one to tell you that I am not a fan of the opera. This on the other hand this was different. We watched the Barber of Seville. Maybe 50 people are allowed to each performance. The show starts in one room in an old Palace. Approximately 45 minutes later you have an intermission. All the... More

I am NOT a huge opera fan, but this evening was more about the atmosphere and the people and the unique experience. you are entertained in a beautiful old venice home, and rotate rooms for each act of the opera with drinks in between. It's a very intimate setting, where the audience really feels part of the performance. The acting... More

I almost didn't get to watch as they were fully booked and only found out about the show on my last night. But I am glad I was accommodated. Thoroughly enjoyed LA TRAVIATA from the singing to the fact that its quite intimate and the audience is part of the performance. It is interesting as you move across the three... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
