Well that's was fun and unexpected! If you like Opera, you probably like a concert hall with exceptional acoustics. Well, here, you have the singers singing for you so close that you understand that the acoustics is not your priority. On the other hand, it was quite fun to follow the libretto in front of the singers as you were... More

5 hours later and both my wife and I are still buzzing from a truly wonderful opera experience. We followed the trip advisors guide and arrived early, which proved invaluable. Throughly professional, the extremely talented musicians and performers will beguile you. The performance was 2hrs long with two short breaks. We attended the 5pm performance which meant we could wind... More

Went to see La Traviata performed by four musicians and 3 great voices in this beautiful palazzo right on grand canal. Beautiful music in these surroundings, each act was performed in a different room.

What an amazing night! All involved are incredibly talented and the interaction with the audience and spectacular setting adds so much to the whole experience. The performers not only had the audience laughing, but the musicians as well - it was hilarious and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.

This is a unique way to view opera for both opera lovers and those who are new to opera. A limited number of people are allowed to each performance, which makes it intimate and special. It takes place in a former palace overlooking the grand canal. Guests are ushered up a candlelit staircase and the opera takes place in 3... More

Intimate professional and in the most beautiful setting.the audience follows the performance through three rooms and the small cast carry the performance to every person in the audience and are supported by a tiny but enigmatic orchestra. You can tell everyone of them is involved and loving it. And set in such grand rooms with extraordinary frescos on the ceiling,... More

What a great experience. The performance takes place within a small palazzo and you sit amongst the performers. There are 3 acts approx half hour each. After the first act, the audience moves into the foyer for a glass of prosecco during the 10 min intermission. Then you move into the parlor for the second act. And finally into the... More

An abbreviated and well-sung "La Traviata" in a Venetian Palazzo, where the small audience moves to three different rooms for the three acts, and gets a free prosecco during a break? What's stopping you?

Professional musicianship coupled with a lively and fun performance. The musicians engaged the audience throughout! We traveled with 12 students, many who have never heard opera before. They were all laughing by the first few bars. Lovely bel canto voices filled the rooms of the retired palace which was romantically lit by candlelight. I would recommend this for those who... More

Wow. This was a very fun experience. We have been to opera before, but never in a setting like this. The experience was definitely affordable, especially when compared to the opera house itself. But the setting in a restored Palazzo was what set this apart. To be so close to the vocalists where you could literally feel the voices was... 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.
