About the Event

Immerse yourself in Verdi great dramatic opera La Traviata and add another unforgettable experience to your stay in Venice. In the impressive atmosphere of the Palazzo Barbarigo‐Minotto, the dramatic power of the opera, interpreted by great singers and musicians, unfolds in candlelight.

Musica a Palazzo sets the action of Verdi's opera within an authentic historic Venetian palazzo. This contemporary interpretation is closely related to Verdi's own thoughts on dramatic opera. In Verdi's time, the brazen realism of La Traviata caused a scandal at its first performance.

The first act begins in the Portego (central hall) where the spectators will be situated in the role of Violetta's (Traviata) guests. At this joyful celebration, Violetta and Alfredo will be introduced to each other and fall in love. The second act takes place in the Sala Tiepolo whose beauty and intimacy are the perfect setting to appreciate the subtlety of the “interior dialogue” of the characters and to be moved by her conflicts. The drama of Violetta’s illness and death is consummated in the Camera da letto (bedroom with alcove).

Not even the extraordinary 18th‐century stuccos can divert attention from the emotional intensity of Verdi's music: the voices of the singers, in close intimacy, resonate deep within the audience!

During the interval of the performance and surrounded by the magical setting facing the Grand Canal, Musica a Palazzo offers you a glass of Prosecco, soft drinks, and fine liqueurs.

    An unusual way to present La Traviata it was very well adapted to suit the uniqueness of the venue. I felt I was part of the production rather than an onlooker. It was a powerful performance which I enjoyed immensely.

    Attending this performance of La Traviata was like being on stage inside the opera. The performances of the chamber musicians and the three lead singers were superb, and the experience unforgettable.
