Owner description: 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.

The palazzo is a little bit difficult to find at the end of a very narrow alley. Once you find the right door, you enter into a small scale opera heaven. One performance can accommodate about 80 people, which gives a very unique and intimate watching experience. As the opera goes on, the audience moves with the singers and musicians from one room to another. We enjoyed the performance of La Traviata a lot - Interesting and fun to watch and listen. Highly recommended.

Venice is also famous for live music performance and this best place to listen to best talent in Venice. Performers are great and have your tickets booked in advance.

This is a must-see. I'm English, so I didn't understand everything in its entirety, but this was still a highlight of our trip. A unique setup. You see opera in 3 different rooms. The performance goes for a little over 2 hours. My husband isn't much into Opera, but he had a really nice time. The rooms are incredibly old and beautiful it really ads to the show. The singers and musicians were all fantastic. I wouldn't hesitate to take friends to this in the future. Definitely go if you get the opportunity! You will be very happy you did!

The venue - a Beautiful Palazzo on the Grand Canal is different and definitely unique.
The singers, musicians and sets were all exceptional. Unfortunately I found that the lag time between Acts was a little to lengthy. You lose the momentum of the experience firstly by the move to another room but then again by the long wait for the next Act to begin. True opera lovers will prefer the Opera House.

This was an amazing experience. I love opera and being this close to the action was so much fun and a one of a kind experience. even if you're not the biggest opera fan. they sell a book with the english/italian commentary so you know exactly what is going on, but i recommend researching the opera before so you can watch and not read word for word. we saw the barber of seville and the figaro character was excellent and his voice filled the whole room. rosina was also spectacular. it's best to sit in the few front rows but not next to the musicians because they will over power you hearing the singing. get there at least 20 min before for good seating. eat before going because everything was closed afterwards on a sunday night at least.
