  • High and Low Dr Doug (Denver, CO - CO USA)

    The opera house was spectacular, resurrected from the 1996 fire. We had fine seats and a wonderful view. While The Rake's Progress was a new opera for us, the director took this in a most unsatisfactory staging. The singing was excellent, but on-stage antics unsuitable. Go to Teatro La Fenice for another opera, but skip The Rake's Progress.

  • Tosca Ed & Lorna (Naples, Florida - Florida USA)

    The opera was fantastic and our seats were perfect.

  • Tosca @ La Fenice Stephanie (Vero Beach, Florida - Florida USA)

    Everything went perfectly: voucher and ticket delivered electronically before I left the U. S. I was comfortable and confident about my superb seat. It was a stunning performance!

  • Exactly what I needed - and prompt! Tours For Independent-thinking Women (Adelaide, SA - SA Australia)

    When I needed tickets for Opera at La Fenice Select Italy produced them! They were where I wanted and delivered promptly - with excellent support and follow-up.

  • Teatro La Fenice=Special experience Terumi MUNECHIKA (Tokyo, - Japan)

    Thank you for my very SPECIAL experience at the bicentennial year of VERDI in Italy!

About the Theater

Like the Phoenix for which the theatre is named, Teatro La Fenice finally rose from the ashes in November 2004. Following a devastating fire in 1996 that nearly burned the famous opera house to the ground, massive reconstruction took place to restore the theatre to its original splendor. Known worldwide for its dramatic beauty, La Fenice is also known for being the cradle of many great operas. It was the site of the infamous fiasco at the premiere of LA TRAVIATA, and of the great triumphs of TANCREDI, ERNANI, and RIGOLETTO that helped launch the careers of Rossini and Verdi. Some events in the upcoming season will take place at the restored and charming Teatro Malibran, located in the Cannaregio neighborhood.
