Overview

The Teatro Carlo Felice Opera House was inaugurated on April 7th 1828 with the opera "Bianca e Fernando" by Vincenzo Bellini. The original project was made by Architect Carlo Barabino. Unfortunately, during world war 2nd an incendiary bomb destroyed the Theatre. On April 7th 1987, the foundation stone of the new theatre was laid. The new architectural project was created by Ignazio Gardella, Aldo Rossi and Angelo Sibilla. The artistic season 1991/1992 was the rebirth of the new theatre. Since then artistic seasons including operas, concerts and cultural meetings have been held.

Completely rebuilt and refurbished, Carlo Felice is a good example of theatrical architecture and interior design. One of few excellent opera houses in Italy, its playbill is a treasure trove for all lovers of bel canto and more. Ballets and instrumental concerts also feature in...More

If you are planning an Opera tour of Italy dont forget to see this "state of the arts" facility. I went there for the Verdi's Otello in Januray 2014. Simply the best Opera performance I have seen in Italy in that period.

We went to see and hear Verdi's La Traviata. Although I thought I was ordering the tickets well in advance, I was wrong and we had high seats. Even with the less than the best location, the performance was greatly enjoyed. Bravo.
