Opera night at Arena, Verona: 23 reviews and 46 photos
The performance we watched was Aida - a good one if not a big opera fan - its quite dramatic and the scenery is great. At the beginning of the performance when the spotlights go down the area was lit by candlelight. This is a tradition from when the first opera performances began here and there was no electricity - it was a magical setting in the old arena. The acoustics are amazing too - the performers do not have mikes but even right at the top of the arena we could here the music clearly.
Dress Code: Smart but comfortable would be a good idea -the stone steps get quite hard after 4 hours of sitting on them!! Thank goodness there were 2 x20 mins breaks between the acts.
