Where on earth did they find these musicians? They were not able to play a single piece in tune, and it was painful to listen to. Our son, who is a violinist, sat there in disbelief. If this had been the neighborhood's 12 year-olds coming...More

The Vivaldi concert was so out of tune in some spots my whole body cringed in response like hearing chickens getting abused. It was ok for the most part but some notes were horribly out of tune and there is no way you can skip...More

Lovely evening performance of Vivaldi would definitely recommend. We were impressed the quality of sound and found it great value.

This made a lovely change from being in the hustle & bustle outside. The musicians were fantastic and the venue all added to the atmosphere of the occasion. If you can fit this in on your Venice trip you will not be disappointed.

I would defiantly recommend doing this in Venice. The scenery- being in the prison wAs fabulous and the sounds beautiful echoing off the walls. The orchestra were fantastic and hugely talented! A must do! Even if you didn't know the artist- you'd recognise the music.

Fabulous music in a unique setting. The musicians are quite good and their sound resonates in the setting of the Palazzo delle Prigioni. It vibrates with feeling and will fill you with joy.

Okay it wasn't La Fenice but they could at least have tried. Surely there must be oodles of would-be opera singers looking for opportunities to earn a few Euros? There could have been a modicum of atmosphere (candles don't cost much). Perhaps even an attempt...More

Although locals are probably overdone, for we tourists, hearing Baroque on a balmy summer night in the Prigioni was bliss. 3 violins, a viola, cello , and bass were sublime. As well, the performers were 100%, despite the somewhat well worn pages of Vivaldi. And...More

The concert at the Palazzo Delle Prigioni featured opera singers with piano accompaniment performing the most famous opera arias from Carmen, The Barber of Seville, Don Giovani, Cavalleria Rusticanna, Vedova allegra and other selections as well. What better way to spend a Tuesday or Thursday...More
