This section is dedicated to the Teatro Filarmonico which, in the 18th century, thanks to the work of the founders of the Accademia Filarmonico Company, became a foundation of cultural life in Verona.
Verona is famed for its summer season of Performances in the Arena though the luxurious Teatro Filarmonico has a schedule of performances throughout the year.
Teatro Filarmonico is the main opera house in Verona, well known as a leading opera house in all of Europe. Each year the teatro plays host to the renowned International Singing Competition. This is a highly competitive event as the auditions are open to all nationalities. The applicants must know the entire opera by heart in Italian. The auditions are for lead roles in a premier production which will first take place in the Teatro Filarmonico and then will be later staged at the popular Arena di Verona during the summer months.
Verona is simply a city to behold! Known as one of the most popular tourist destinations in northern Italy, this world heritage city has so much to offer in artistic heritage, annual shows and fairs, ancient amphitheatres and famous operas held during the lyrical season.
