A visit to the Arena di Verona can be the experience of a lifetime for opera lovers and newcomers alike. The massive ancient Roman structure, warmed by the Italian sun, comes alight on summer evenings, resonating with the rich sounds of grand opera at its biggest and most extrovert, and illuminated by the gentle glow of the candles handed to audience members as they enter as much as by the vivid stage lights.

Arias and elephants, grand scale, grand opera – everything about the Arena di Verona speaks of spectacle and exuberant excess. The 2016 season provides a particularly special occasion, reviving the vast 1913 production than inaugurated the Arena as an operatic landmark.
