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.

2019 summer’s list of operas and concerts performed by Rome’s Teatro dell’Opera includes the composer Ennio Morricone (15 – 23 Jun), the Tokio Ballet on 26 Jun, the Aida (4 Jul – 3 Aug), the worldwide famous ballet dancer Roberto Bolle and Friends (9  – 11 July), the Traviata (19 Jul- 8 Aug),  the Italian pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi (29 Jul), Romeo and Juliet (30 Jul – 4 Aug) and the Spanish opera singer Placido Domingo (7 Aug).
