Overview
More
This marvellous theatre has only 99 seats shared between its boxes and stalls. It was finished in 1808, under the Napoleonic occupation, and was initiated by nine local families. In the second half of the 19th century it was decorated by Cesare Agretti and in 1892 by his son Luigi, only 15 at the time, who painted the ceiling and the vaults, the boxes and the meeting room. The interior of the theatre, considered “the smallest in the world”, is made entirely out of wood in the “Goldoniano” style and represents a rare example of its kind, offering a harmonious and well thought out use of space for scenery, for the actors and the audience. Plenty of shows take the place each year: prose, opera, classical and jazz concerts. The theatre is also available for meetings and civil weddings, and can be visited on Saturdays and Sundays, and in July (morning) and August (Morning and afternoon) everyday

We visited this "smallest opera house in the world" as part of an Umbrian photo workshop. Wonderful little venue with many photo opportunities. Located in a quiet and historic hill town.

Performance is limited because it is a bit difficult to have a complete audience to bear the costs. We are delighted to your satisfaction with the cultural visit! Thank you.
