A lovely addition to our stay in Taormina. This is a one hour performance with an interlude for drinks on the roof terrace. We would definitely recommend the Italian Opera to anyone visiting Taormina.

If you haven't been to the opera, this is a great introduction; popular arias performed, slightly bizarrely, in the cinema, which does have a stage. Prosecco at half-time in the balmy open air; what's not to like?

From May to October Operatic concerts are being staged in the Cine Teatro in Taormina three times a week. My husband and I found out about them by seeing a poster and leaflets advertising them. We thought it would be a great thing to do whilst on holiday in Italy so we booked tickets and went along. I guess I was expecting to hear the old familiar arias and that would have been fine but in fact I, not being an opera buff, only recognised one aria of 10 in the programme. This was, however not a disappointment. The Soprano and the Baritone opera stars of some standing were absolutely fantastic and they brought real character and entertainment to their performances. There were some solos and some duets. The pianist also played a couple of pieces which had us transfixed. The evening was split into two halves with an interval during which we were served with a free (plastic) flute of white fizz on the terrace overlooking the hustle and bustle of one of Taormina's Piazzas. There was an encore consisting of "O Sole Mio" and a song to the theme from The Godfather. We really enjoyed this event. All the concerts have different artists and content making each visit a unique experience.

A really great way to spend a few hours after dinner on a warm summer evening. Some of the pieces were instantly recognisable. The venue was small but had a lovely feel to it.
Drinks were served on the terrace at the interval and it had a nice relaxed atmosphere.
You don't have to know anything about opera to have a really enjoyable evening. Wonderful!!!
