The best place for summer festivals
Aug 2019
I've been here so many times... it's the best open air arena in Italy, YES, better the Verona. The reason is of its dimensions and quality of the shows.
Sferisterio is smaller than Verona but has the longest stage ever, about 90 mt.
This means room for ballet, actors, scenery and everything else that a cretive director could desire.
From opera to rock, Sferisterio is the best.

Wonderful
Jul 2019
Fantastic old historic opera house in Macerata. We saw Carmen here last night and it was a serious treat. We were in box 35 and had a lovely view of the stage, sets and production. The opera house is magnificent. It has its quirks but still offers a wonderful time. The production was high quality and immensely entertaining. The air was warm and balmy. The town is lovely. Hard to fault a thing!

Opera Festival at the Sferisterio: highly recommended!
Jul 2018 • Couples
Great location for the annual Opera Festival. I have been going there many times over the last 30 years, and I must say that the arena Sferisterio is a unique place to enjoy the magic of the "opera lirica". I recommend watching the opera at Sferisterio at least once in a lifetime!

An amazing and unique setting for opera
Aug 2018 • Family
Whether or not you are an opera buff, Sferisterio is well worth while visiting because its enormous stage is unique, in the shape of a sphere - hence the name. They only perform three operas each season, and whilst the city does not have too much to offer, most tourists flock in August primarily for the performances of opera.

Spectacular! Unforgettable!
Aug 2018 • Couples
Amazing experience. Classic Italian operas under the stars!
The venue was both times that we were there fully packed.
The town has special free multi-level parkings available for guests of the Sferisterio.
Recommend to book a dinner in advance, arrive earlier, calmly have dinner and then walk to the event.
Pleasant classy Italian atmosphere. A gentleman on my left sang by almost all the lines of the opera :)

Excellent opera experience
Aug 2018 • Friends
It was nice and special listening the famous opera LaTraviata at the Sferisterio. The old arena with the perfect view. I bought my tickets in advance at the Sferisterio ticket office. The family package of four tickets gives you a big discount. Along with the Italian subtitles they showed English one too. Seats are not very comfortable for seating for 3 hours. I brought my little cushion. Excellent experience!

Great arena for multiple open air shows and concerts
Jul 2018 • Solo
Very beutiful arena prepared to host very special concerts and shows. Super stars of the classical repertoir were hosted by this historical site such as Placido Domingo or Maria Callas. The opera season starts mid July until August, just to consider.

Well worth a look
Oct 2017 • Couples
Astounding place - really friendly folk at the desk who gave us a guide book and chatted to us for ages about the place. It is well worth a visit and while I've been visiting Italy for 20 years I'd not seen anything like this before - quite an insight into 200 years of culture and change. 3 euro to get in.

Amazingly Beautiful Venue
Aug 2017 • Couples
A privelige to enjoy Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood perform in such a beautiful venue which is traditionally home to the Annual Opera Festival.
Oriniginally built as a sports venue in early 1800's this housed a popular game similar to squash before football became teh most popular sport and teh venue was converted to a home for Opera.
A small crescent of seating backed by a bacony and finally two levels of boxes with six free standing chairs in each, there is not a bad seat in the hosue (although the far wings would feel a little envious of ther est of the crowd).
Free tour for 3Euro available before any shows recommended.
