“beautiful”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

even if you don't the chance to attend a show, join one of the tours to see the inside of the magnificent work of architecture. It is like a time travel to the 70's. Guided tours are available twice daily, you need to get tickets from the ticket office.

“The hub of Turin performing arts”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The hall was packed to hear Abdullah Ibrahim caress the piano non-stop for almost 2 hours, an experience to be remembered.
The acoustics is excellent, the theatre beautifully elegant. It hasn't dated in all these years since it was opened in the late 70s (if I remember correctly).
The spacious external areas lend themselves to meeting people and wait comfortably (while watching the monitor) if you've arrived a bit late.

“Modern building with a respect for tradition”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Saw four performances of Verdi's Don Carlo here. The theater is modern but elegant. The musical director Noseda is an excellent conductor with a strong but pliable baton. Solo singers were generally fine and the chorus was excellent. Stage designs, sets and costumes were appropriately elaborate. Orchestra was very fine. Almost every seat in the house is a good one and the acoustics are great.

“OK, but not the most impressive opera house”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We went to "Il matrimonio segreto" and it was absolutely good. The opera house is not very impressive, but it's always nice to visit a new opera house when travelling.

“Modern Operahouse, very convenient with excellent acoustics”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

We visited the operahouse for the first time last weekend and we were favourably impressed. We saw Norma and the acoustics were excellent. It is a well conceived open plan theatre with a wonderful feeling of space. The orchestra level is quite spacious and raised appropriately. There is one box level above the orchestra level. It is well organized for entry and exit and the ticket office next door is well organized and informative. The only problem is that they had only one caisse working during the interval - one has to prepay the drinks or coupe whatever before going to the bar to collect, and the queue was so long that by the time we reached the caisse, there was simply not enough time remaining. But this is a detail - we loved the theatre.
