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 Traviata ( 3 – 20 Jul) and Carmen (14 Jul – 2 Aug), and the ballet Romeo and Juliet (27 July – 4 Aug). Other performances on the program include the composer Ennio Morricone with him 60 years of music tour (16 – 17 Jun), Paolo Conte and his orchestra (14 – 15 Jun), James Taylor (23 Jul), Björk (30 Jul), the worldwide famous ballet dancer Roberto Bolle and Friends (17 – 18 July) and Joan Baez (6 August).
