Famous as the location for Shakespeare’s tale of the young lovers Romeo and Juliet, Verona also stages the summer highlight of the Italian Opera festival calendar in the splendid Roman Arena, built in the 1st century AD to accommodate 20,000 spectators and used for opera since the 19th century. Located in the Piazza Bra in the heart of the ancient city on the river Adige, the Arena di Verona provides a huge performance space, the stage erected in it every summer is the biggest in the world.  The configuration for Opera accommodates an audience of up to 16,000 people.  The first Opera season opened on 10 August 1913 in commemoration of the centenary of Verdi’s birth and many famous singers have been discovered there, including Maria Callas and Placido Domingo.
