MADAMA BUTTERFLY • September 12, 2023

A music trip to Naples can be a wonderful combination. The city offers excellent culinary attractions and a cityscape that is best explored on foot with a private guide. You are constantly reminded of the volcano that spilled over Pompeii almost 2,000 years ago. Today this is a worthwhile destination. And then Amalfi invites to a long day trip or a connecting stay. Also Capri, Ischia and the Aeolian Islands. You could easily spend months there.
But the highlight of your musical journey is the visit to the Teatro San Carlo to a performance of your choice.

The Teatro San Carlo

The San Carlo Theater was built in 1737 and is the oldest opera house in the world.
The Italian opera temple San Carlo is a symbol of the city of Naples. In the central position between the famous Piazza del Plebiscito and the Gallery Umberto I you find this historical opera palace. The Teatro San Carlo was built in 1737, by the will of King Charles III of Bourbon with a strong intention to give the city a new theater that represented the royal power.
It’s date of birth anticipates the Teatro alla Scala in Milan by 41 years and the Teatro La Fenice in Venice by 55 years. The project was entrusted to the architect Giovanni Antonio Medrano, a Spanish Colonel Brigadier stationed in Naples. Medrano’s design envisaged a hall 28.6 meters long and 22.5 meters wide, with 184 boxes, including the proscenium ones, arranged in six tiers, plus a royal box capable of accommodating ten people, for a total of 1379 seats.
