Afternoon Visit to a Beautiful Theater
Jun 2018 • Couples
During our visit to Orvieto recently we had hoped to catch a performance in the beautiful Teatro Mancinelli on the Corso Cavour of this beautiful city. While we didn't get to enjoy a live performance, we were able to take a self-guided tour of the theater and the upper floors of this gorgeous performance space. For a modest cost you are able to spend as much time as you wish, lingering in the main opera house as well as the upstairs performance spaces which are well worth a visit.

A Night at the Opera
Nov 2017 • Friends
I was visiting Orvieto last November and my friends had tickets to an Opera at Teatro Mancinelli. ( a pretty rare event). For 25 euro, it was a super evening, A three part opera with trips to the bar for a glass of wine at the intervals. Acoustics were super and the theatre is beautiful and well maintained. If there are no events, please go just for a tour, its well worth the 2 euro to see a building of culture and class

Delightful Theater in a Delightful City
Sep 2016 • Solo
While there was no performance scheduled during my recent time in Orvieto, I did visit Teatro Mancinelli. Reminiscent of opera houses in Rome and Venice, if more intimate, it has a lovely style and should sound quite good, I expect. I'll try to arrange attendance at an upcoming trip. Just 2 euros to wander about on your own; no brainer if you are in the city.

Amazing hidden self tour
Aug 2016 • Couples
This theatre has shows running and is still in business. During the day you can pay 2 Euro and visit the theatre. It was a very unique experience to wonder the theatre and discover all the rooms and backstage secrets. This is a self guided tour and there are stairs to climb.

Lovely theater and worth the visit
May 2016 • Couples
Beautiful theater with lots of history. It only costs 2 euros to step back in time. The theater itself is still putting on productions. You can tour the main floor, orchestra section and then make your way into the boxes and private event rooms. The painting on the ceiling of the theater is incredible. The details throughout the building should not be missed if you are in Orvieto.

A Gem
May 2016
We visited in May - 2 euros each for a non-guided visit. We were the only people there during our 20 minute stay and wondered why more people had not taken the trouble to come and look at such a beautiful and perfectly restored working theatre. You can admire the wonderful ceiling from the stalls, from any of the 4 tiers of boxes and from the 'gods' right at the top. The Theatre foyer is also a delight - civil marriages can be conducted there and it would certainly make a lovely setting. If you are in Orvieto, don't miss out on seeing this lovely building.

Buy tickets from the theatre cafe.

Beautiful gem close to Duomo
Apr 2016 • Couples
This little jewel box of an opera house is a beauty! 2€ for self tour and takes less than an hour. Features old chandelier that used to be lit by candles and can still be lowered and raised manually. Ceiling has paintings of twelve maidens, over stage three ladies representing music, drama and comedy. Entire place covered in red velvet. Two stairways lead up to the four levels of boxes and the top floor is "general admission" Two side rooms , yellow room and blue room are beautifully painted and still used for functions today-you can even have your wedding reception here! Take a short detour on way to or from Duomo to see this place!

Beautifully well-maintained theater with amazing staff and great food to boot!
Dec 2015 • Friends
This theater now holds a special place in our hearts as we toured it with the owner's proud father who beamed the whole time as he told us all about it! The theater is beautifully maintained, and has friendly staff and a great selection at the bar! There is something for everyone!

Like a glamorous step back in time
Jun 2015 • Solo
A friend I met in Orvieto showed me a few gems in that amazing little city, and one of them was Teatro Mancinelli. I didn't get to see a show, but we did peek in the grand theater and there was a rock band rehearsing/sound-checking. It was magnificent! From the painted ceiling to the ornate design around each cozy little "booth" to the velvet curtains that block out light - I've never seen anything like it. I could just imagine everyone in their finery a couple hundred years ago, filling the place to watch a performance. The entire "curved wall" of the theater consists of booths, with seating for six. There are individual seats on the floor, but if I come back and have the good fortune to see a concert or play, I'd opt for a booth. So classic. It looks like prices vary depending on performance, but there are other beautiful recital halls in the building, too. Definitely worth a stop for this eye candy.

Very much worth a visit even if you have little interest in the theatre
The beautifully decorated theatre cafe serves as an introduction. Pay a couple of Euros and take yourself around the building, visiting each level and the main auditorium. The frescos are wonderful and main screen depicting a scene from the town's history is remarkable. We visited while the Cardeto vineyards were offering a tasting, so that was a surprising bonus.
