Where better to see Gounod's opera Romeo and Juliet than in Verona and where better to experience an open air performance than in Verona's pink marble Roman Arena. The Tradition at Arena Museo Opera is for for each attendee to light a small candle( given to you as you have your ticket taken) as the overture is played. What you have is a magical view of thousands of flickering lights as the excellent orchestra opens the evening. The staging for Romeo and Juliet was imaginative with a two piece three level moving stage and a cast of more than 250. There is a wide range of seating options and prices. For those with mobility issues opt for seats on the Arena floor as the steps for the other seating areas are steep and uneven. The first and second level of tiered seats have backs but buy or rent seat cushions for a more comfortable evening. The cheap seats are on the original stone bleacher stands upon which the Romans sat 2000 years ago. If you love opera get to Verona in summer for a night at the opera to always remember!

Freshly opened this year, this is a well laid out museum over the whole of the first floor of a palazzo. Plenty of space to move round and plenty to see. This is more of a History of Verona Opera, but not worse for that, with sections, on the score, the costumes, the scenery etc. Excellent value for 10 Euros, and if you show a ticket for Arena Opera only 5! Took us a surprising time to go round, and at present is quiet, as newly opened.. Expect it to be get much busier, especially in next years Centenary celebrations.

Touring the arena during opera season would be a little disappointing as so much of the space is absorbed by the seating and staging, so instead see a show.
Our €26 seats gave excellent viewing. Tips: we arrived at 7pm, and were centre back and by then the sun was behind us and we were in the shade; take food and drink as it’s expensive and limited choice inside, €3 water, €4 Pepsi and €5 wine; don’t worry about dress code in this area- be comfortable; hire a green cross cushion for €3, stone seating for 5.5 hours!; libretto is displayed in Italian and English, but is high and off to the side...so if you want it in your eyeline you will need to sit more to the side.

Our entire reason for visiting Verona was to see the opera Aida. The Arena was beautiful and the opera staging Spectacular. However our enjoyment was somewhat spoiled by many, many Yobs taking Photos and Videos all through the performance. This despite several announcements asking the audience not to do so.

I know that I would not come back again until these self absorbed imbeciles are removed from the performance if they pull out a camera during the performance. Looking at the stage the most obvious thing was dozens of camera screens being held aloft often with flashes going off. Bad form and poor management. I think the Arena management need to remove these people. After all they are obviously not Opera lovers and would hardly miss it if they were removed.

The operas staged in the magnificent outdoor arena are a fantastic experience. We recently went to three different operas on three consecutive nights. The operas are very well produced and staged, the orchestra is very good, the acoustics are amazing and the general atmosphere in the arena is fantastic. Unless you want to pay quite a lot for seats directly in front of the stage, we would recommend that you sit up on the stone steps. Ok, your far from the stage, but your view is fine and the acoustics are good, plus the steps are more roomy than some of the considerably more expensive seats.

La Traviata at the Arena was magical, on a a very hot night! Select light, cool clothing if going and take your hand fan! They are on sale at venue if you don't have one. The seats are vey small and close together making things warmer still.
Water is the order of the day.
Opera not to be missed!
Verona is stunning.

Great night at the opera. Fantastic stage scenery which you could see even from the cheap seats! The music and singing clear and beautiful. Look out for small candles for sale as it is a tradition to light these at the start of the performance and looks lovely. Can hire cushions for the stone seats inside the arena for 2 euros or can buy at a stall outside. On the stone seats you can take in your own food and drinks although cold drinks also available to buy. In August the temp inside the arena was very warm so a drink was very welcome. Great buzz inside and outside the arena and fab fire works at the end of the performance would highly recommend this as a highlight of your trip.

Simply must spend a little time in this arena. Alas didn't visit during opera season but enjoyed wandering around and views from the top are worthwhile.

Great for kids - very atmospheric.
