Full description
Let yourself envision the grandeur and theatricality of the world-renowned operas that passed through Venice's Teatro La Fenice.

Founded at the close of the 18th century, La Fenice quickly became the go-to theatre for the opulent premiers of some of the most famous operas in the world, including Rossini’s "Tancredi," "Sigismondo," and "Semiramide," Bellini’s "The Capulets and the Montagues," and "Beatrice di Tenda," and many more. Nowadays, the beautiful theatre is placing special emphasis on contemporary productions, welcoming the world premieres of Stravinski’s "The Rake’s Progress," and Britten’s "The Turn of the Screw," amongst others.

With a seating capacity for over 1,000 people, La Fenice boasts excellent acoustics, a 98-member orchestra and 66-person opera chorus, a dedicated local audience and a large international following.
