What Opera to choose?

Jump to last reply

I will be on a three-week multicity trip to Italy starting 9/21 and want to see an opera, but need help on what to choose as I am no opera buff.

Using the calendar at SelectItaly.com, it seems I can choose from the following:

Pergolesi, Vivaldi (Venice, Interpreti Veneziani) 9/24
Rigoletto (Venice, Teatro La Fenice) 9/25

La Traviata @Auditorium al Duomo (Florence, Musica in Maschera Florence) 9/27
La Boheme (Florence, St. Mark's Anglican Church) 9/28

Enchanting Opera Arias at Teatro Salone Margherita (Rome, I Musici Veneziani Roma Concert) 10/7-9
Focus Kavakos - Omaggio a Bach (Rome, Accademia di Santa Cecilia Concert) 10/8
Quadri d'Opera (Rome, I Musici Veneziani Roma) 10/8
Romeo e Giulietta (Rome, Teatro dell'Opera) 10/8 **this is a ballet***

It seems like the Rigoletto in Venice is the costliest ticket and therefore the one to pick especially since it's at La Fenice. I not only want to see a good opera but also at a great venue so any help from the Italian opera lovers would be greatly appreciated.
