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 2021 season runs from 19th June to 4th September and opens with the 150 anniversary of Giuseppe Verdi's love story, Aida. The season includes a number of amazing shows including Pagliacci, Nabucco, La Traviata, Turandot and a number of one off shows including Beethovens Symphony No.9.
