An amazing experience. Operas have English words so even if you don't speak Italian you should check it out!

Sant'Anatolia di Narco

Used mainly for opera and ballet performances, the Teatro dell’Opera is also known, albeit to a less degree, as the Constanzi Theatre after the contractor who built it, Domenico Costanzi.
Neo-Renaissance in design, the theatre was opened on 27th November 1880 with a performance of Semiramide by Gioachino Rossini, conducted by Giovanni Rossi, which was attended by the Italian royal family. It was purchased in 1926 by Rome city council which also took over its management. Architect Marcello Piacentini, who was at the time entrusted to enlarge the building, added a fourth tier of boxes as well as a balcony and installed a magnificent Murano chandelier, one of the largest in the world. In 1956 Piacentini was once again asked to drew up building plans, radically altering the existing architectural style and designing the present facade, entrance and foyer, work which was completed in 1960.

Today the Opera House, renowned for its fine acoustics, can seat around 2,200 people.
Opera lovers should also absolutely not miss the summer season held in the enchanting open-air setting of the Terme di Caracalla (Caracalla Baths)

Rome's Teatro dell'Opera is a lovely opera house. I wish I could say the same for the art here. The last thing I saw was a tribute to Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. The sets were gorgeous, the dancing less so. The 80 year old Carla Fracci took it upon herself to play the sexy nymph in Nijinsky's Afternoon of a Faun. It was incongruous at best, and I found myself tuning out, enjoying the opera house atmosphere and imagining my own more believable romantic storied. It's definitely worth seeing a production here at some point, however, if you're spending any length of time in Rome.

Magliano Sabina

When the lights of the room are lowered, the curtain opens and the magic of the theater begins, sitting on my armchair, looking at the bottom of life, the theater, which begins, I feel lucky, lucky to be in one of the most beautiful theaters of Italy, lucky to be in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Fortunato, to participate, together with others, in the magic that only the gift can stir up in us, that of being able to still marvel, of the stage and its actors.
