Verona Opera

Verona Opera


The renowned Verona Opera festival is one of Italy's greatest spectacles and the highlight of the summer in this ancient city. Attending a performance at the 1st Century amphitheatre is a wonderful experience and on many people's bucket lists - there's nothing quite like sitting in the warm air and enjoying the electric atmosphere and spectacular opera.

The 2020 season runs from 13th June to 5th September and opens with a new production of  Leoncavallo’s “Pagliacci” and Mascagni’s “Cavalleria Rusticana.” The season includes Verdi's La Traviata, Nabucco and Aida, Puccini’s Turnadot and other one-off performances.

Early booking is recommended. For numbered seats, Inghams will apply for your tickets and from mid-November we can normally confirm within 48 hours. Your holiday and ticket confirmation/invoice will then be sent to you. If we are forced to offer tickets in an alternative price range, you will have 24 hours to confirm your acceptance. Payment for opera tickets should be made at the same time as your deposit once tickets have been confirmed. We regret that we cannot waive cancellation charges for holidays cancelled as a result of tickets not being obtained.
