The Basics

The lavish auditorium holds up to 1,600 spectators; three of the tiers have theater boxes, while the uppermost two tiers have graduated rows of seating. The best way to experience the theater is during an evening concert, opera, or ballet performance, available between November and June. Daytime tours are also available once a week. Tours that focus on off-the-beaten-path Rome attractions typically stop to admire the 1920s exteriors of the theater.
