  • A beautiful lens through which to experience Roma Ms Elwood (Elwood, Victoria, Australia - Victoria, Australia Australia)

    I so loved my first evening with Opera Omnia that I signed up for a second event two days later. Music, poetry, architecture and art came together to provide a magical insight into key events and places in the history of Rome. I would strongly recommend any event involving Opera Omnia. They provide a way of connecting that cannot be delivered by sightseeing.

  • Lovely Holiday Concerto USA (Syracuse, NY - NY usa)

    The photo indicated instruments, but it was solely vocal. A surprise to us. Wonderful performance and location. We really enjoyed the evening.

  • Lovely way to spend an hour or two. Julie Brown (Rochester, - United Kingdom)

    This is a great introduction to understanding a little about some of the periods of history that surround you when in Rome. The performances were very professional and surroundings inspiring so I would highly recommend this type of evening for all.

About the Theater

With so much to offer visually, Rome is a city in which music can often be neglected. Every place has its angle and it isn't easy competing with the Colosseum and the Vatican. Opera Omnia has taken a thought-provoking path in using the incredible spaces that Rome has to offer not just as a backdrop for concerts, but as a fundamental aspect in the creation and presentation of their programming. This series of concerts take place in very distinctive locations: Chiesa Sant'Agnese in Agone, Galleria Doria Pamphilj and, occasionally, Villa Farnesina. And beginning in September 2012, the fabulous "Marble Hall" of Palazzo Barberini will be on display during a new program of Baroque musical treasures. In addition to the musical performance, the service includes a 30-minute guided explanation (approximate, in English) of the premises. Each location is special in its own right and characterizes one of the many hidden jewels of the Eternal City.
