Beautiful building, prices starting from 8 euros, at a staging of "La Sonnambula". The orchestra was magnificent, the voices were decent.

The décor is stuck back in the mid-20th century, but the house itself is intimate and acoustically rewarding. The orchestra, chorus, and principal singers are of the highest quality - in the case of the opera I attended they survived a mess (literally and metaphorically)...More
