Beautiful theater in the center of Bergamo
Oct 2019
When you are walking along the Sentierone you can admire the view of the Donizzetti Theater. The theater was built in 1791 designed by architect Riccardi. After a fire in 1797, the theater was rebuilt and reopened in 1800. This Theater Hall is considered one of the best in Italy and has retained its original appearance in 1786. Its area is 360 square meters and can accommodate 532 people.Beautiful, historical theater in the city of Bergamo.

Amazing performance in a half-renovated theatre
Nov 2019
The Teatro Donizetti is indeed not completely renovated but should be ready for next year's Donizetti Festival . This year it was decided to perform the first of this year's three operas in the half finished building . The area which would normally be the stalls was the 'stage' and the whole of the opera , L'Ange de Niseda ' took place in this space , though the chorus sang in the first act from the fourth floor of the boxes . The effect was quite amazing and my sister , a seasoned opera-goer , said it was one of the most wonderful operatic experiences she had had . We were so close to the singers , we were totally involved . When the renovation is finished this will be one of the most impressive 19th century opera houses . Watch this space .

Under renovation

Unfortunately during the 3.rd Donizetti Festival the theater was closed due to renovation works, which are around 18 million Euros. We hope that it will be again open for the next year festival.

Great Theatre
Sep 2015
The Donizetti theatre was built in the late eighteenth century and named to the great composer who was born in Bergamo.
The theatre is so nice and take part of the exclusive club of traditional opera houses of tradition.
In addition take pace the Bergamo Music Festival, the Season Opera and Ballet.
The Donizetti hosts a well-established prose season, contemporary theater plus other trails and many other initiatives-show including the Bergamo Jazz Festival and the season of operetta.

a real gem

Fabulous theatre styled like LA Scala Milan with a horseshoe shaped auditorium and 5 floors of beautiful old fashioned boxes. An absolute must if in Bergamo, and try and get a box as opposed to a seat in the stalls!

A lovely little museum
Oct 2014 • Friends
We came to the Donizetti museum almost by accident, spent some time looking at the exhibits and talking with Madame Bartolotti the curator and Mr Capitano the librarian, both were friendly and well-versed in their subject. The importance of Donizetti's teacher Simon Mayr was emphasized. There are numerous portraits, play bills, old instruments. A comfortable way for a music lover to spend 45-60 minutes in Bergamo, which is the loveliest of old cities.

Wonderful!
Sep 2014 • Friends
I had my first experience of attending the Opera in Italy, at Teatro Donezetti. This elaborate building was a fitting place to enhance this moment. The Opera, Lucia Di Lammermoor was
amazing. The scenery was very well done, but the cast really made this first time special. They were magnificent, especially the lead singer who was spot on. She looked and sang like an angel. I was especially pleased to have the gist of the story in English sub-titles as my Italian is minimal. The seating was easily accessible and the restoration of the building added to the polish of this Grand building. Take the opportunity to attend an opera here ....you will not be disappointed.

Visit to Donizetti Museum, Bergamo, Italy
Apr 2013 • Couples
For opera or music buffs, this is a well-worthwhile museum focusing on the life of the great Italian composer, Donizetti. The museum connects Donizetti's personal and professional history to the times in which he lived and provides a perfect collection of memorabilia of this great artist.
