The Macerata Opera Festival takes place over five weekends from July 20 to August 19, 2023 at the open-air Arena Sferisterio in the small town of Macerata in the Marche region. Spend one of the mild Italian summer evenings with beautiful opera music in the magical atmosphere of the Arena Sferisterio in the open air.
The Arena Sferisterio is one of the most extraordinary theaters in the world. It was built in the 19th century as a sports stadium for an old ball sport where balls bounce off the wall. Hence the unusual shape. The high arched wall with the columns forms the stage. The arrangement creates a kind of resonance box and the spectators sit as if in an auricle. The open-air arena Sferisterio has exceptionally good acoustics, a treat for sensitive ears. The spectators are very close to the opera singers, with no barrier between the spectators and the stage. At the Macerata Opera Festival, the audience becomes part of the theater scene.
The stage of the neoclassical arena is particularly designed. The wide and shallow stage is a challenge for the directors to present the operas in this special ambience. The atmosphere is all the more beautiful and magical. The open air theater offers 2,500 seats for spectators. Immerse yourself and enjoy a unique operatic experience in this very special open-air arena Sferisterio in Macerata.
In 1921 operas were performed in the Arena Sferisterio for the first time and since 1967 the Macerata Opera Festival has been held every summer. It has grown into one of Italy’s most popular open-air festivals.
