Select Italy (http://selectitaly.com), the web-based boutique travel company, is a one-stop-shop for accommodations, vacation packages, guided tours, transportation services, museum and opera tickets, including those to the most exclusive venues where to experience opera in Italy.
Not only is Italy the birthplace of opera, it is one of the best places in the world to attend to these cultural and artistic performances, with splendid 19th-Century opera houses -- sometimes the very ones where the operas were first performed -- and a rich culture supporting this art form. Among its vast selection of tickets, Select Italy offers the best opera venues in famous Italian theaters. Since the new seasons are announced around this time of year, this is the right time to browse the event schedule and book tickets.
In Italy, every city has its theater, and among them the Teatro dell’Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Teatro Massimo, Teatro La Fenice, and Teatro Regio -- just to name a few -- are renowned for their outstanding opera and ballet schedule. In the Eternal City, the Teatro dell’Opera has been the stage of historical productions since its founding in the 19th Century and to this day it keeps featuring a stellar schedule of operas and ballets. In Rome, another great choice to experience memorable concerts and operas is I Virtuosi dell’Opera di Roma. The seasonal events of this orchestra, composed entirely of highly-distinguished singers and musicians, take place in different locations such as the Teatro Salone Margherita and the Chiesa di S. Paolo Entro Le Mura. Located in Venice, the Teatro La Fenice is worth a visit for its history alone, but you will be impressed by its remarkable schedule. First opened in 1792, when it rose from the ashes of the San Benedetto Theater, the leading opera house in Venice for the previous forty years, and reconstructed in 2004 after another devastating fire, La Fenice is considered one of the most important theaters in Europe for its spectacular architecture and for being the site of many operatic premieres. In Florence, music has always played an important role, and the tradition continues with the Opera di Firenze, the new home of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino music festival. One of the oldest and most important music festivals in Europe, it boasts a rich schedule of operas and concerts with Zubin Mehta as the principal conductor.
“The Bel Paese is the cradle of opera and there is no place like it to experience this form of art -- historic performances played in the original setting of majestic theaters that date back through the centuries,” says Justin Anderson, Manager of Operations & Client Services. “We recommend that travelers who want to see a particular performance or theater book their tickets in advance. This is the perfect time of the year to do it as the new schedule is being announced, so there is the most availability.”
