Your Evening at the Opera Under the Stars at the Baths of Caracalla will have to wait till 2022
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.
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s Caracalla Festival has been postponed to 2022.
However, 26 open-air performances will be held at the Circus Maximus from June 15th to August 6th, 2021. Known for being the biggest stadium in the history of humankind, the Circus Maximus will have a 1500sqm stage and will be able to seat 1000 people ensuring all safety measures are met.
2020 summer’s list of operas and concerts performed by Rome’s Teatro dell’Opera includes the Roman singer Claudio Baglioni (6-18 Jun), Andrea Bocelli (21 Jun), Vinicio Capossela (23 Jun), the English National Ballet Strictly Gershwin (TBA), the Barbiere di Siviglia (TBA), the Aida (TBA1), the worldwide famous ballet dancer Roberto Bolle and Friends (13 – 14 July), the singer-songwriter Yusuf (20 July), historically known as Cat Stevens, the German pop and crossover violinist David Garrett (26 Jul 2021) and Franz Lehár’s La Vedova Allegra – The Merry Widow (TBA).
