Simply amazing. We saw the Barber of Seville, and you become part of the opera in its intimate setting. The singing and music was excellent, the old palace rooms that each scene were set in were lovely. Be warned if you sit in the front row, you actually will be involved. Figaro combed my hair, the Count left me with his wine bottle and used me to fend off the attack from the Doctor, and then made stink eyes at me in an overstated comical way for the rest of the night. I have never laughed so hard at the opera!

An absolutely fantastic experience! An intimate Opera as might have been seen/heard a century ago in the private salon of a Venetian noble.

Up to the first intermission was good. Then after the second intermission the chairs became way too uncomfortable and it was way too hot. Had to leave as we were very, very uncomfortable. The first section is also the most familiar to non-expert opera attendees. If it was 1/3 the length it would have been perfect. Or better chairs or air conditioning. It was nice and cool at the start but quickly warms up.

This was the highlight of our trip to Venice. Such a great experience. The performers were very talented, and simply approaching the entrance to the building had a feeling of exclusivity that you may not get at other shows. It's a bit pricey if you don't think you'll be returning to Venice to use your membership for future shows, but it's still worth every penny.
