This doesn't look like much from outside, but if the doors at the top of that amazing stairway under the portico are open then climb into this amazing building, either for a guided tour of the spectacular theatre or merely to use the elegant bar for an aperitif and soak up the atmosphere. Or go to a show, it'll be... More

I've showed my daughter the wonderful theatre of our town: it's possible to visit it in the afternoon till the end of July. It's one of the nicest places we have in Brescia and visitors can't miss it!

I have been there and watched my friends in The Nutcracker in November 2014. It has been a very beautiful experience. This theatre is a jewel and well kept. It deserves a one-night event or more if you can!;)

A classic-style theater, that hosts a piano festival, dramas, ballet and operas. I remember unnecessary queues to get tickets. Hope they allow e-tickets now.

Excellent and beautiful theater. Comfortable seating. Stage is slanted a bit so you can see people at the rear but it is tricky for those performing to balance themselves if they need movement. There was no casual dressing.
