One of the most famous theaters in all of Europe is situated in one of the most magical place in Europe, the stunning city of Venice. Teatro La Fenice (“The Phoenix”) has poetically ‘risen from the ashes’. Its name reflecting the lose of two theaters to fire and leagal problems only to re-build and re-open giving life again to the Opera company, where many premiers of famous Operas would take place.
The latest reconstruction began in 2001, with the intent of trying to recreate the intimate ambience & magnificence of the earlier 19th century styled theater using still photographs captured from previous performances as their reference. Together, 200 specialised craftsmen spent just under two years to complete the remarkable theater well know today as ‘The Phoenix’.
