“la traviata”(253 reviews)
Accessible Opera, as though it was in your sitting room, but its a palace in Venice. Stunningly personal. Fun fun fun with 3 light and easy Operas to choose, 7 nights a week. It will make so many people's trip to Venice even more memorable.
Suggested duration: More than 3 hours

With only approx. 70 seats available at this truly unique opera venue, we felt both welcome and lucky to be part of a night of 'Rigoletto' by Verdi. The opera takes place in several different rooms of the old palace and thus the guests will...More

A most atmospheric and unusual evening. We saw an abbreviated version of La Traviata very well sung with a violin,cello and piano accompaniment. The Palazzo Barbarigo Minotto is a special location with each act in a different room. Bravo !!
