The most important open-air opera theatre in the world
Arena di Verona is the symbol of the city - a Roman amphitheater in Piazza Brà. It is the most visited attraction in Verona, and one of the most photographed. The arena is famous for its large-scale opera performances, mounted each year between June and August.
Arena di Verona (Verona Arena) has a capacity of 20,000 people, however, for safety reasons it only seats 15,000 for opera and concerts. Since reopened as an opera venue, the arena has been the stage for many internationally acclaimed artists, including Maria Callas, Tito Gobbi and Renata Tebaldi. You can find recordings of these artists and many others at the official shop of the arena.
