Attending an opera at the Arena of Verona during the summer festival is truly a unique and memorable experience…. Perhaps not everyone knows the story of each opera, nor the historical context in which they originate. This ancient Roman amphitheatre which has been perfectly preserved for over 2000 years is an impressive venue for grand opera with it's amazing acoustics and imposing stage. Perhaps not everyone knows the story of each Opera, nor the historical context in which it was written. At times it is also difficult to understand the lyrics as they are being sung. An informal Aperitif, with Prosecco and local cheese and salami, accompanied by a professional Opera singer is the ideal solution to prepare for the show. Everyday prior to a performance in a very central and stylish location few steps from Piazza Bra, you can experience a Taste of Opera show.
