Your Evening at the Opera Under the Stars at the Baths of Caracalla will have to wait till 2021
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 2021. The performances won’t be cancelled but postponed, so you can expect the same performances next year. Tickets purchased for the 2020 edition will be valid for the 2021 edition. You can access the same performance in 2021 directly with your 2020 ticket. If you won’t be able to attend the festival next year, you can request a voucher by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The ticket office will issue a voucher of the same amount you spent to be used within 18 months from the date of issue. The voucher will be valid for all scheduled performances.
However, 21 open-air performances will be held at the Circus Maximus from July 16th to August 13th, 2020. 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.
2021 summer’s list of operas and concerts performed by Rome’s Teatro dell’Opera will be the same performances that were planned for the 2020 edition. This includes the Roman singer Claudio Baglioni (6-18 Jun 2021), Andrea Bocelli (21 Jun 2021), Vinicio Capossela (23 Jun 2021), 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 2021), 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).
