Saw their contemporary version of La Traviata, excellent job by cast and orchestra. The facilities appear to be almost new compared to the grand halls in London, Paris, Rome. While on vacation, we try to experience a performance, to capture the essence of the community....More

Heard Zubin Mehta and Andreas Schiff with Brahms Piano Concerto and Shostakovich symphony. It was fantastic, Acoustics were absolutely wonderful - and we are Classical Music snobs. We got a cab from our hotel as we would never have found the place, ate really good...More

While in Florence, do not miss the artistic program of the Teatro del Maggio. I was fortunate enough to watch the concert of Zubin Mehta and Andras Schiff. It was fantastic! In addition, I had the chance to walk through a less touristy region of...More

Whilst it is strange to visit a modern building such as Teatro del Maggio Musicale when in historic Florence it really is a magical (and emotional) experience. There is a choice of seat prices to suit every budget. We had the 20 euro seats and...More

The MMF has an amazing chorus and orchestra. In my opinion they are the best in Italy. I would highly recommend anybody to go and see their season. Coming to the opera will make a wonderful evening. Be sure to support them.

I saw a Bellini opera there. The cast was pretty good, but this opera was not for me, but booring. Anyway the building is amazing. Hope will be back soon for another venue.

I love the Maggio Musicale and take it in each year. There are many different kinds of performances. Certainly there is one to meet every musical interest. Also visit the new beautiful opera house. Extraordinary.

It's a very good option for not being in a typical italian opera house. The acoustic is great, the variety of their repertoire is nice and the orchestra director is amazing. The orchestra is ok though.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
