Concert of the Accademia Santa Cecilia with Radu Lupu
Colin & Carol (Elora, Ontario
The concert was magnificent. Antonio Pappano brings out the best from his players and his rapport with Lupu was great. Love the terraced hall, the seats were perfect and the staff friendly.
All Mozart Concert
Lisa (Gippsland, Victoria
I loved this concert and the varied programme meant my husband also enjoyed aspects of it, not being a huge classical music fan. Wonderful venue!
Amazing venue and they had my name on our two tickets when I arrived! Very friendly staff, incredible music - a great night and well worth flying from the UK to see!
I heard the Santa Cecillia orchestra at Auditorium-Parcodella Musica in Roma. The performance was excellent, especially for Ravel's The Bolero was very impressive to me. It was no problem to get the ticket at the venue. I hope to use this system next time.

excellent service - ticket pick-up in Italy worked flawlessly - thank you!
Founded in 1585, the Accademia di Santa Cecilia is one of the oldest musical institutions in the world. For centuries, it attracted the attention of the popes, ensuring its prominence in Rome with regard to cultural events. Today, the Accademia proposes seasonal events performed by some of the most celebrated contemporary artists and orchestras in the world. Currently, the Orchestra of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia's music director is Antonio Pappano. The Orchestra's new home - the state-of-the-art Parco della Musica - adds a whole new facet to the experience. Designed by Renzo Piano, Parco della Musica is made up of 3 separate venues, an outdoor amphitheatre [at which a summer festival season is held], and the ruins of an ancient villa [discovered only after ground was broken for the new concert hall]. For music lovers spending time in Rome, this will be a valuable addition to their stay.
