MADAMA BUTTERFLY • Arena di Verona | September 07, 2023

Verona is world famous for the Opera Festival in the Arena di Verona, which attracts millions of music lovers every summer. The Arena di Verona is the world’s largest open-air opera theatre with space for up to 22,000 spectators on the steps of the 45 rows of seats.

Verona is a city of music and opera, especially in summer. The Three Tenors Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti and Josè Carreras were regulars in Verona. The Verona Festival started in 1913 with the performance of Aida on the occasion of Giuseppe Verdi’s 100th birthday. Opera lovers around the world dream of watching an opera on the marble steps of one of the best preserved Roman amphitheaters in the world. A dream that you should experience at least once in your life. Not only operas are performed in the Arena di Verona, pop singers such as Elton John, Bob Dylan, Zucchero and Sting also gave concerts here.

Verona is a World Heritage Site for its urban structure and architecture. The historic city center is beautiful and can be explored on foot. It is like an open archeological site in-between the many beautiful Renaissance palaces. And yes, it is famous for the setting of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”. Above all the beautiful sites is the Arena, a huge Roman amphitheater from the first century. The daily mean temperature between June and early September is 21C to 23C. This is perfect for an outdoor performance in the Arena. There are famous operas, concerts and ballet performances to chose from.

Every year we create exclusive music trips to Italy for friends of opera and ballet. Operas of the leading Italian composers Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini and Gioachino Rossini are favourite in the Arena. Enjoy the extraordinary atmosphere at the Roman amphitheatre in the heart of Verona in the summer months under the open sky. Please make your travel plans early and select a performance of interest. Because, if there are less than two months to go, the best tickets might be sold out, the hotels might have increased prices and things may become difficult. With our music tours you get the best seats, on upholstered chairs, together with a nice stay program in Verona.


MADAMA BUTTERFLY – Arena di Verona Opera Festival 2023

The opera Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular operas by the Italian composer Giacomo Puccini.
The libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica is based on the 1898 short story Madame Butterfly by John Luther Long and the tragedy Madame Butterfly.
The action takes place around the turn of the century in Japan, near Nagasaki. Butterfly is the geisha of an American naval officer who marries Butterfly. Butterfly is rejected by her family and her husband left her shortly after the wedding. When he comes back, he brings his new wife from America and wants to take Butterfly’s son with him. Madame Butterfly stabs herself with her father’s dagger.
The opera Madama Butterfly was first performed at La Scala in Milan in 1904, at that time in two acts. In 1904 the opera was rewritten into three acts. The opera Madama Butterfly is a feature of every opera house and will be performed at the Arena di Verona during the 2023 Summer Festival.
