La Fenice Theatre

The La Fenice Theatre, located in Campo San Fantin in the San Marco district, is the main opera house in Venice and one of the most prestigious in the world. The name couldn’t be more apt: like the mythological creature that rises from its ashes, the Teatro La Fenice was reborn after two devastating fires that completely destroyed it. The first dates back to 1836, which exploded due to a malfunctioning stove, and the second, of a malicious nature, to 1996.

In 2003, the most coveted stage in Venice began hosting operas and concerts again, maintaining every part of its sumptuous eighteenth-century style, where gold, velvet and decorations contribute to creating an elegant, old-time atmosphere. In fact, on the occasion of both fires, there was a strong desire to restore the theater to its splendor, maintaining its original style in every part.

From an architectural point of view, the La Fenice Theater is a classic “Italian-style” theatre, with five tiers of closed boxes, according to the national tradition of the time.
