Das Orchester und die Sänger des I Musici Veneziani führen in einem Opernkonzert die schönsten Arien der barocken lyrischen Tradition im exklusiven Ambiente des Salone Capitolare der Scuola Grande di San Teodoro in Venedig auf.
Super moment en famille, le concert nous a vraiment plu. Très bon niveau aussi bien les musiciens que les chanteurs. De plus, ils véhiculent une bonne ambiance et une gaité qui fait que le temps passe très vite. Bravo à cette équipe formidable.
This is a wonderful performances of the world's favorite opera pieces. Very talented cast. Highly recommended.
BUT.... beware of the ticketing system. Online, we paid extra for front row seating but when we arrived, 15 minutes before the performance, our seats had been given to others and we were seated 12 rows back on the side. Protests brought no explanation.
This was a fantastic experience - and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Venice. The setting is excellent - both picturesque and atmospheric, although be warned, you will need to navigate around 50 steps. The orchestra are very professional and they wear what look to be authentic costumes but the stars of the show are the three specialist singers - the soprano, the tenor and the baritone.
Each aria is performed as it might be within the opera, so they are acted as well as being sung expertly. The effect is both comic and moving, and the strength of all three voices were wonderful. The standing ovation at the end was well deserved. It was packed, so i suggest that you book early. Collecting the ticket 30 minutes before the performance is easy.
Recommended unreservedly - a real highlight of a trip to Venice.
