Venice Performing Arts

Art has been a way of life in Venice for so many centuries that it seems you need only inhale to enjoy it. From mid-June to early November in odd-numbered years, the Biennale dell'Arte attracts a whirlwind of contemporary arts, showcasing several hundred contemporary artists from around the world. During Carnevale, masks and costumes let revelers dance with history. Costumed musicians will entice

you to performances in the finest churches, palaces, and scuole grande, but don't ignore the bel canto wafting through the canals or the opera issuing from open windows of conservatory practice halls.
