New Art exhibitions At Gran Guardia for season 2013-2014

The Barber of Seville in the Arena

Barber of Seville in Arena Verona

I am not an Opera expert, but this year I've been to see the Barber of Seville in the Arena, for sure one of the most "funny" Operas on the program of the Opera season that every year take place in Verona during the summer. I write here below the plot of the show.



Shows in the Arena - Updates for season 2011

Rock concerts Arena Verona

Some new shows are planned in the Arena during the summer. The Opera season is still going on and many new performances are planned until september, but if you want to come to Verona on Holiday and if you prefer rock concerts or other kind of shows this is what you can see live:

July 18th - Deep Purple with orchestra - with this show, one of the best "old school" rock bands of ever will try to make something similar to their old famous concert with the Orchestra at the Albert Hall in London in '70s. It would be interesting to see how they will feel playing in the roman amphitheater of the Arena. A fascinating experience for sure.

Theater and shows in Verona for summer 2011

The Cathedral of Verona

The Cathedral, the main church of Verona (but in my opinion not the most beautiful one) is dedicated to S. Maria Assunta and it is one of the examples of romanesque style in Verona. This church is part of a bigger complex of architectural buildings which include
S. Giovanni in Fonte, S. Elena, the cloister, the Capitular library and the bishop’s residence. Here lives and celebrates the bishop, this is why it is considered the main church of Verona.

Renaissance in Verona

Venice Republic during renaissance in Italy was very strong and from 1405 even Verona became part of its domain loosing its independence and becoming a less important center in Italy compared with the importance the city had during the period under the Scala Family. This is why the Renaissance arrived later than other central Italy towns, even if in Verona it had its own peculiarities. 

Di Caprio is not alone... many other V.i.p. are waiting for Verona
