If you would like to experience an unforgettable night, you cannot go past the opera performances held in Verona's 2000 year old Roman Arena. On summer nights, this ancient amphitheatre is transformed into a grand open-air opera theatre. Under the starry Veronese sky, amidst the summer breezes, you will sit on the tiered, pink marble steps of the amphitheatre and witness a spectacle unique in the world. Before and during the performance, a qualified teacher will guide you through the production.
For those with a special interest, LINGUA IT Italian school, also offers introductory courses on the composers, music and lyrics of those operas contained in the Opera Festival program: www.arena.it.
