The Teatro dell’Opera di Roma continues its efforts to bring opera and ballet to an ever broader public, with especial attention to the younger members of society. The aim is to attract the public of the future, giving young people the chance to buy tickets at a special reduced rate.
Nine productions (ballet and opera) in the 2015-2016 season have been chosen to allow under 26-year-olds the chance to buy tickets for tickets at just 15 euros and enjoy a recital before the actual show. What’s more, those wishing to make the most of this opportunity can purchase a season ticket for all nine productions for just 100 euros. A unique chance for the younger members of society to watch the great classic operas and ballets: Verdi’s La Traviata and Un ballo in maschera, Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, as some less often performed works, such as Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and Rossini’s La Cenerentola. The goal is to make these masterpieces of musical theatre, this great cultural heritage more accessible and closer to a generation that would otherwise be excluded from the habit of going to the opera or ballet.
