Beautiful Opera House
Sep 2019
I was fortunate to see Il Barbiere di Siviglia at this opera house. It is truly gorgeous, lots of gold, red velvet and marble in the interior, very lush. The opera house burned down in the early '90s and was totally rebuilt. I sat in a box seat, that had seating for 6 people. The front row of seats in each box has typical opera style seats secured to the floor and quite comfortable. The second row of seats in each box, however, has these high backed bar stools, that are not secured to the floor, and extremely uncomfortable. The three of us in the second row of the box could barely enjoy the show due to the seats.

Want authentic Italian culture, you got it.

This is the 4th largest opera house in Italy. Beautiful interior, but uncomfortable seats unless you are on the floor or in a box.
I've seen opera in New York and London, but the singing and audience reactions here (we saw Tosca) blow them away. It's very interesting to watch the locals, who may be wearing slacks and a polo or a suit and tie/dress.
Tickets are not expensive 15 euros got us to the cheap seats; I think the most expensive was 45 euros.

Acoustics fantastic, sight lines not so much at the back, but a great venue worth visiting.
Jun 2018
We booked to see a ballet one night in June and we had mixed feelings about the venue, although mainly good. On the plus side it is a beautiful building, fairly new despite appearances due to a relatively recent rebuild, and the stage is spacious and the acoustics remarkably good. On the minus side, the seats at the front of any section seem to have their line of sight interrupted by a bar running in front of them. We got the cheapest seats, at the very top, so expected this, but I got the impression (open to correction) that the front row of other sections suffered the same problem. However, the seats are comfy and if you don't sit in the front row of any section then you should have a terrific performance. I was surprised on the Sunday night we went to find the place was only about half full. I am very curious about why that was, as the performance we saw was great and certainly well worth the twenty quid tickets, booked from the UK. Go and see for yourself if you're visiting Bari.

Even in the Madhouse We Viewed It, a highlight of our Trip to Bari
Oct 2016 • Couples
We saw the outside to the theatre and read its history and wanted to see the inside, but did not want to pay for a city tour to do so and only had two days here. It turned out that there were a series of performances of Cenerentola (Cinderella) in 1+ hour performance for children. So we went and stood in line to buy tickets as 400 3rd to 5th graders stood in lines with teachers to descend on the Teatro. For 5 euro a ticket we got to go inside, see the whole theatre, listen to sung opera with a live orchestra and experience Italian school kids and parents. A real cultural experience and the inside of the theatre is stunning.

Bland exterior Belies Interior Opulence
Apr 2016 • Couples
You'd never know it to look at it from the outside, but the Teatro Petruzelli shines like a jewel once viewed from inside. The acoustics are only surpassed by the 5-tier elegance. I recently was seated up high for a piano concert and was amazed at the clarity of sound. They did a great job with the restoration a decade or two ago after a fire. A trip to Bari would not be complete without seeing this theatre- more like an opera house.
