Spectacular theater
Sep 2020
Due to the Covid, the theater was almost empty. This theater is very impressive by its size and the tremendous seating area all in wood. A visit is a must.

Such an interesting place with a fascinating story. When you consider the size of it, when and why it was built I am sure it will make you wonder

Fantastic
Jul 2020
Great to visit this amazing theatre with very few people (there were two others when we visited). The Fornastetti plates sitting in seats was a great idea. This theatre is early 17th C and you can see all the ancient beams as you walk behind. Really kool.

Make it your first stop in Parma!

Wow, wow and wow! Absolutely jaw-dropping in magnificence, and a must see if you're in Parma (or really worth a trip if you're near the city.)

As an added bonus, if you visit before February 14, 2021 there's a wonderful exhibit at the theater, "Fornasetto. Theatrum Mundi" which celebrates the Fornasetti design house, architecture and the works of the Palazzo della Pilotta. The use of the Fornasetti plates in the theater was fantastic - took the experience to the next level!

A hidden gem
Aug 2019
Right in the centre of the city, but hidden from immediate view, just step inside this magnificent construction and be blown away. The theatre is constructed entirely from wood, and so has very special colours and acoustics. It reminded me a little of the theatre in Vincenza.

Really nice place to visit, we were there for only an hour but we enjoyed it. Staff could a little bit more “smiley”, they sounds bored. Irecommend the place.

Quite Extraordinary

If you see nothing else in Parma, see this! We have never seen a wooden theater this large. It must have been splendid when painted.
Admission is included with the National Gallery.

Extraordinary theatre inside a Palazzo
Nov 2019
I went to see this theatre in Parma, which is insde the Palazzo del Pilotta in Parma. The original was built in the early 17th century, in the Baroque style, but standing in the middle of it is an interesting experience. It was bombed an nearly destroyed in WWII, but re-constructed after the war. They do have performances there although not when I visited. The palace is a museum, and quite impressive in itself, with a small, magnificent picture by Leonardo da Vinci.

It was great to be able to walk around inside the theatre. The history of the theatre was interesting & well presented. There was a video showing how it is still used for concerts throughout the year.

The copy of the original Teatro Farnese is within the Pilotta Palace. The original was destroyed during the World War II in 1944. The copy is an exact replica of the 17th century theatre and it is well worth seeing it.
