“Grand Old Teatro in little Orvieto”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

If there is something going on at this theater while you are in Orvieto, don't pass it up. It's a spectacular space for music and especially opera.

“Jewel Box”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I had hoped that there would be a performance here so I could see the lush interior of this theatre, but unfortunately there wasn't. So I decided to pay the 2 euros; wow, how beautiful! Tickets are purchased at the theatre bar and I had the place to myself! It's open Tues-Sat from 10am-6pm and Sunday from 4-8pm. With you entrance fee you receive a small brochure explaining the beautiful frescos, the façade, atrium, carved stucco and the richly painting ceiling and tapestry curtain and can wander throughout the neoclassical theatre which dates back to 1856. It was fun sitting in a box seat and the views of this bell shaped, little jewel box were excellent. Also don't miss the second floor, "blue and yellow rooms" plus the conference and garden rooms: really beautiful. Lots of stairs but there are elevators. You don't need more than 1/2 hour here and they have great bathrooms! Its easy to find, located on the main street, Corso Cavour and the attached theatre bar offers great coffee and a fine view of the pedestrian traffic. Don't miss it!

“A lovely theatre.”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We attended a local dance performance in this theatre as we had heard that the building was special. Although it is a modern building, we felt we could e back in Mozart's era, as the four levels of boxes are typical of his time. Certainly worth a visit.
