Synopsis: Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 as a cafè chantant, an intimate venue where people ate while watching variety shows and opera performances. The theatre Salone Margherita has been completely refurbished and is once again fulfilling the theatre's original idea of a cafè chantant. A fine dining experience for each performance is offered in the elegant Liberty Halls on the top floor, with reserved seat in the central balcony to see the show, and in its prestigious and exclusive private boxes overlooking the stage. A gourmet journey where you will enjoy the best of Italian tradition.

Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name Margherita was a clear homage to Margherita of Savoia, King Umberto's first wife.

Here typical vaudeville shows were presented to flaunt more luxury and refinement than in any other theatre in Rome. In the '10s, the best comedians and the most sought after soubrettes of the age appeared in the playbill of the theatre, and, throughout the past century, it has been associated with revues, Roman comedy, vaudeville and operetta. Since 2011, it has hosted an important part of I Virtuosi dell'Opera di Roma's concert season.

The Orchestra I Virtuosi dell'Opera di Roma, formed by professors of the most prestigious Italian conservatories, specializes in performing whole operas, especially those from the Italian tradition.

"La Traviata", the most famous opera by Giuseppe Verdi, set in Paris in the mid-1800s, tells of the impossible love between Violetta, a well-known courtesan, and Alfredo, a young good-looking nobleman. From its beginning, their story is predestined to end in tragedy.

During a party, courtesan Violetta discovers that Alfredo has been in love with her for the past year. A short while afterwards, they are living together near Paris, but because of her past behaviour, Alfredo's father asks her to leave him. Violetta sacrifices herself and Alfredo, unaware, hurts her. A few months later Violetta is dying. Soon Alfredo is there at her bedside. Crying out that she feels life returning, she falls dead in his arms.
