Description:

Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name...

Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name Margherita was a clear homage to Margherita of Savoia, King Umberto's first wife.

Here typical vaudeville shows were presented to flaunt more luxury and refinement than in any theatre in Rome. In the '10s, the best comedians and the most searched soubrettes of the age appeared in the playbill of the theatre and, throughout the past century, it has been a theater attached to the revue, Roman comedy, vaudeville show and operetta.

Since 2011 I Virtuosi dell'opera di Roma performed here an important part of their Concert's Season.

Booked for my birthday. Few days prior to going received apologetic email that my booking had to be cancelled or moved. Disappointed but REALLY glad we still were able to go just a different evening. The theatre is beautiful quirky and sumptuous. Easy to get too taxi cheap. Welcomed and shown to our stall. We booked the private stall with... More

Booked this on line and didn't know what to expect as we have never been to an opera. Had a wonderful evening, didn't understand a word of La Travita but understood the plot. Small opera house but immaculate in every detail. Had the dinner option where you have the first three courses before the opera and the 4th and 5th... More

We went to see La Traviata and had a wonderful nights entertainment. We had dinner before as the show started at 8:30pm but were advised to come early when the doors open an hour before as the seats are not allocated you are just booking an area, which is unusual. When we arrived we were shown to our area and... More

Having never been to opera we felt that this was something we must do in Rome. We opted for the box with dinner at 90 euros each. We thoroughly enjoyed the opera. The performance was excellent. The food was a little disappointing. Although there were 5 courses, they were all very small and the main course especially was little more... More

We saw a beautiful performance of La Traviata. The theater is small and intimate. We were able to sit in the front block and could watch the orchestra as well as the opera. Having a small buffet before the performance was an added surprise. The price was very reasonable. We would certainly go to another performance.

I took my nana to this theater as a surprise & she loved it! The tickets for the back stalls are very affordable & you can still get a decent view. I paid a fraction of what I would have for the theater in Venice. We also got complimentary pasta. The staff were friendly, definitely recommended!

Small intimate theatre. Seating slightly cramped but this would not detract me from going to this theatre in the future Food provided prior to performance basic but of good quality . Production was excellent and dance sequence outstanding given the small sage. The fact there is not an orchestra pit and orchestra was on same level as audience enhanced the... More

This was our first opera but not our last. It was amazing. We had a box above the stage so we could see the orchestra, ordinance and the scene changes which we enjoyed. We had dinner which comprised of 5 small dishes of traditional Roman food. They even provided a gluten free menu at short notice. The performance was brilliant... More

We booked a dinner and box for the evening and were not disappointed. The service was great, they were even happy to adjust their menu and make me a gluten free meal which was amazing. We booked last minute and the only box available was over the stage, the guy at the ticket desk was great, he was very truthful... More

I went to see La Traviata with my husband and teenage daughters whilst in Rome on holiday. We chose the dinner option and had a box close to the stage. We are not opera buffs, but we all had a great night out. The opera company is small (I counted 22 singers and dancers) but the quality of the singing... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
