Experience an opera in the heart of Roman ruins.

One of the most magical things to do in Rome during your corporate retreat is to attend an opera amidst the ruins! Operas often take place in extravagant locations. However, one of the most mystical and unique ways is to experience an opera right in the heart of the Roman ruins and in the open air at the Baths of Caracalla. A unique experience to have especially during the long summer evenings in Rome!

The Baths of Caracalla, erected in 212-217 AD, were a highly frequented place by the Romans. Today, it is the best-preserved thermal building of the Roman Empire. It’s within this atypical setting that we will live the unique experience of a majestic opera. The tumultuous “Nabucco” by Verdi, the joyful “Barber of Seville” by Rossini, the majestic “Carmen” by Bizet, or “Madame Butterfly” by Puccini are just some of the operas we can discover during this unusual activity at the heart of the magnificent Baths of Caracalla.

Located on one of Rome’s most beautiful promenades, these baths now serve as a backdrop to appreciate famous operas. Not only do these open-air theaters offer wonderful acoustics, but the entire decor integrates perfectly with the various shows offered on stage. Indeed, lighting effects highlight the ruins which make the performance even more impressive.

Opera is one of the most moving forms of entertainment in Italy that has spanned centuries and centuries. Did you know that it first appeared in Florence in the 17th century? Opera is a musical and theatrical work featuring characters. Attending an opera in the heart of the Roman ruins at the Baths of Caracalla is a novel experience to share among colleagues after exploring Italy’s capital city, Rome, all day!
