“Amazing”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Ok – here it is – the best part of our holiday. By chance we discovered we could buy tickets to Opera, but not opera in a theatre, but opera taking place in 3 rooms of an old Palazzo (Palazzo Barbarigo Minotto) on the Grand Canal. I didn’t even think about it and got the 70 Eur/ person tickets for Il Barbiere di Siviglia. What a treat!! It was amazing to see them performing just 1 metre away from you. I want to go back to Venice only because I want to see the other plays they have. If you like opera – this is a must! They also have drinks (alcoholic and soft) included in the price, during the interval.

“Musica a palazzo”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We saw la Traviata. Three singers, held in three different rooms and the audience moved with the action. It was amazing - I didn't know the story and (of course) it was in Italian but even so, I found myself crying at the end - it doesn't end well...I thoroughly recommend this and it was a real highlight of our stay - quite a special experience!

“Very special experience”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Great location, just two minutes walk from a vaporetto stop. Nip through the narrow venitian walkways, over a little bridge, into the palace doors and up the candle lit stairs...
If you enjoy opera I cannot imagine a better way to enjoy it than this. An intimate performance by talented artists in a venitian palace who engage the audience in the show! Great fun and hugely entertaining. The two hours went like a flash and we will definately be back for more asap.

“Wonderful Evening!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

There were around 40 people attending but the atmosphere is very intimate as you sit around the room often on different sides. The singers are sometimes just a metre away but never more than 5-8 metres. It is a delightful atmosphere. We are not opera goers but went on seeing the reviews and enjoyed it very much. Each act was in a different room. The programme (Euro 5) had the story and all of the lines in English so we could fully understand the play. If you do not know the play arrive early to read about it! It is not an easy place to find and the Trip Advisor marker is in the wrong place! We wasted 1.5hrs trying to find it and very few people knew where it was (a policeman knew fortunately). It is a tiny covered side street just off a dead end street called Fondamenta Duodo O Barbarigo alongside small canal (Ria Di Santa Maria). Just before the end of the street turn right under the buildings and it is on your left near the end.

“Fabulous way yo spend an evening in Venice!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

The opera was great, we had a group of opera lovers and novices. Everyone enjoyed the singing, the moving from room to room with the change of scenes or acts, the costumes and the opera in general. The opera takes place in an 15 century palazzo that has done significant history to it. The rooms are very interesting and most importantly the singers and musicians sang and played with great passion. It was truly a delight.
I must admit it was hard to find but we just kept asking directions and it was well worth it.
