An Evening at the Opera Under the Stars at the Baths of Caracalla
There’s no better way to spend a balmy summer night in Rome than enjoying an opera, ballet or concert at the Baths of Caracalla. A cultural hub and vibrant social spot back in Ancient Rome, the Baths were the equivalent of a community day spa, where Romans would go to bathe and socialize. It was a place to entertain and to be entertained. Fast-forward thousands of years later, and the ruins have become an open-air, improvised stage that welcomes thousands of locals and tourists every summer.
This summer’s list of operas performed by Rome’s Teatro dell’Opera includes Carmen (June 28-August 4h), Tosca (July 8-August 8), and Nabucco (July 25-Aug 9). Other performances on the program include Pianist and composer, Ludovico Einaudi (June 13-14), the ballet dancer Roberto Bolle (July 11-July 12) and the Italian singer Franco Battiato and the Royal Philharmonic orchestra (July 26).
