Teatro Reggio Parma, Italy
Brian (Kfar Saba,
A wonderful experience to see a performance in this truly historic theater.
I would not recommend to take any seats in the boxes except in the first row.
Select Italy services were excellent.

La Forza del Destino in Parma
Pedro (miami, florida
Tickets and service by Select Italy was very good and on time. The seat location could have been better, but was ok. The opera was magnificent, the best production we saw on our trip.
Thank you, Pedro, for your nice review. This particular venue is not very large and the Verdi Festival is one of the most popular in Italy, so the best seats sell out quickly. We suggest next time that if you want the best seats, you order well in advance.
Simon Boccanegra @Teatro Regio
Ginny & Phil (Union, WA
The opera was wonderful - singing, acting, orchestra, orchestra conductor, sets.
Opera House - beautiful.
Select Italy service worked out perfectly.
Home of Verdi and resting place of the renowned violinist, Nicolo Paganini, Parma boasts a fine musical tradition and is home to one of Italy's most important opera venues, Teatro Regio. Inaugurated in 1829 with a performance of Bellini's ZAIRA, Teatro Regio is in beautiful neoclassical style. Attending a performance here is quite an experience, not only because the memory of Giuseppe Verdi (born in nearby Busseto) can be felt at every performance, but also because the Parma opera audience is regarded as one of the most knowledgeable in Italy. During the summer, Teatro Regio celebrates the work of Verdi by presenting a series of new productions.
