The Arena di Verona is the world’s largest opera theatre, showcasing open-air opera performances since 1913 to a capacity of 14,000 in its ancient Roman amphitheatre.
In this sensational opera house, from June to the end of August, sublime opera performances welcome music lovers and melomaniacs for its 96th edition of the Arena Opera Festival.
The new scenography of Carmen by Georges Bizet inaugurates the Festival. It will follow the classical opera of Arena’s repertory, Aida, proposed in the historic revocation of 1913 and in the massive scenography of Franco Zeffirelli.
Nabucco of Giuseppe Verdi, Turandot by Giacomo Puccini and Il Barbiere di Siviglia by Gioachino Rossini are the other three Operas taking place in June and August.
