Fodor's Review

Rome has recently stepped into the spotlight for opera aficionados thanks to Maestro Riccardo Muti's ongoing support of Rome's Teatro dell'Opera. Though considered a far younger sibling of La Scala in Milan and La Fenice in Venice, the company commands an audience during its mid-November–May season. In the hot summer months, the company moves to the Terme di Caracalla for its outdoor opera series. As can be expected, the oft-preferred performance is Aida, for its spectacle, which has been known to include real elephants. The company has lately taken a new direction, using projections atop the ancient ruins to create cutting-edge sets.
