My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary watching La Traviata. We met at music college and wanted to do something musical (which is tricky out of season). No its not La Fenice, but it was a really magical and fun evening in a truly unique setting and it was musically extremely well-adapted to the chamber setting. Violetta was... More

We saw the La Traviata. Annoying shuffling of ~70 patrons through 3 rooms over 2h period (which includes 10 min interval with a glass of sparkling wine); 3 singers, 3 string players and a pianist. Stiff atmosphere, hardly any connection with the audience; and for this we all paid 80EUROS (120 CAD)...no allocated seats; we arrived 1/2 early to be... More

My teenage daughter and I really enjoyed the performance of The Barber of Seville. My husband, not as much, but he's rarely wowed by musical theatre. I think he would've enjoyed it more had we reviewed the story prior to the performance. Though the script in the program is helpful (an extra 5 euro), it is hard to read along... More

We attended a performance of Barber of Seville; it was a delightful evening. The 5 singers were great, and quality voices! The musicians did a superb job and the pianist is so fun to watch in and of himself! The setting is in a palazzo and you move room to room for the different acts; very creative way they perform...

Palazzo Barbarigo-Minotto is a truly beautiful Venetian building just a stone’s throw from St Mark’s Square, now home to a very personal introduction to Opera. We saw a brilliant La Traviata, Verdi’s story of doomed love performed in 3 acts with a small cast in various rooms. A very special way to experience Opera, you sit around the room can... More

When we purchased tickets to the opera Barber of Seville, we assumed the performance would be in a theater. It was not. The production was staged in multiple rooms of a Venetian Palazzo. When there was a scene change, the audience got up and moved to another room. I realize that this sounds odd, but the entire production was charming.... More

We went to Music A Palazzo for the The Barber of Seville in July and I have to say this was a very interesting and up close way to see live performance. You are right there on the same level as the cast no matter which room you are viewing the performance from. We did not book through a company... More

We went there during our short trip to Venice. My wife is musician and we go to all kinds of performances quite often. Our expectations were mixed: this is quite a commercial show, but we hoped for the best. We were not disappointed. The location is nice although you probably only see a tiny part of this wonderful palazzo. The... More

The one thing I knew about Music A Palazzo before I booked it was that it would be very up close & personal. I hadn't anticipated the titular Barber would put a long grey wig on my thoroughly bald head, though. I kept it on until the end of the first act, mind. I didn't want to upset the chap,... 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.
