Lot of pressure on this one with weight of expectation and being the centrepiece of our honeymoon, but it surpassed all our dreams: the setting is iconic, the production magnificent and we wept like children - absolutely loved it. Even smuggled a fine bottle of wine in. Had seats at front of Poltroncina Centrale de Grad in the middle, padded... More

We paid for the best seats in the house (189 Euros each!), but considered it the best value for money experience ever. We saw Carmen and loved every moment of every act. Magical! Wonderful! This fantastic arena, the phenomenal production, the dancing, the singing, the choreography, all combine to deliver the best that human beings can be. If you're in... More

This was our third visit during the last three years. This time, we saw Placido Domingo and The Masked Ball. Both fantastic! Well worth a visit if you are in Verona or surrounding areas. We paid around 30 Euros a ticket to sit on the steps ..... just perfect! We will return next year for definate.

This was the first time my husband and I had been to an opera and we weren't disappointed. This venue and the performance not being the full opera was a perfect introduction to Carmen. The only reason I have rated this as very good and not excellent was the introductions for each act were only in Italian and we would... More

Went to this place before we explored on our own and glad we did! Lots of resources and pointers on the history of Verona. Just keep an open mind and nice attitude...some of the staff doesn't speak English fluently but really tries hard to help out as much as they can!

An absolute 'must visit 'for every Opera enthusiast. Italian emotion and sense of Melodramatic fills the air as I sat there spell-bound by the vocal agility and acting skills of the singers. Magnificent costumes in the perfect environment.

I wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived as it is a small venue and therefore very intimate. I initially thought that the singers were all relatives and was pleasantly surprised to find out that they are all very good. The performance of Carmen was as it should be - funny at times (with some audience participation too!) but... More

I attended the "madame Butterfly" and was enchanted by the wonderful atmosphere that surrounded me and the voices of the singers. What impressed me is that the project is completely founded on LOVE: the love of MAestro Serenelli for Opera and for the talented singers he meets. Love generates love and so the idea of a new operatic event, which... More

Why not visit Villa InCanto as contrast to the grand spectacle of the Opera in the Arena? Here you can experience Opera close up and in a novel way. It is a very relaxed and informal approach even though the setting is very grand. We particularly appreciated the chance at the end to mingle with the performers and enjoy some... More

What a wonderful magical evening, we are not Opera buffs but having La Boheme and the music explained by the musical director made the evening so much more enjoyable. The setting is idyllic and the interval wine and snacks perfect with fabulous emotive singing, this made it a perfect evening for our visit
