Arena di Verona 2019
Opera in the midsummer night
The Arena di Verona hosted its first Italian opera over 100 years ago and has remained a summer attraction for opera fans due to its outstanding acoustics.
It is the second largest Roman amphitheatre (the Colosseum in Rome is the largest) and holds up to 22,000 visitors. The stage covers an area of 1,500 square meters, making it difficult for stage directors, but the challenge is always magnificently overcome. This turns every performance into a monumental, open-air experience. Absolutely magnificent!
