During the Verdi festival, I attended an opera (Falstaff) and a concert (Verdi's Requiem). The theater is beautiful. Take a look up at the medallion in the ceiling. It reminded me of La Scala, but smaller, more intimate and more accessible. I definitely recommend trying...More

Parma audiences are highly opinionated and perhaps somewhat provincial, but it is a very special experience to attend opera with people who CARE about it and take it seriously. This is a soberly elegant theater that is about 200 years old. There are interesting performances...More

While I was visiting Parma the Opera House was presenting the annual Verdi festival. Ticket prices were way beyond my budget but I was able to join a tour in English. You only visit the auditorium but this is splendid. It is very much a...More

we had a tour round the theatre. not a big trip, but well worth seeing. beautiful layout, decor and ambience. I'm not one for an opera, but probably would have given it a go in this location. maybe next time round.
