Musica a Palazzo Barbarigo Minotto
a new way of experiencing opera
Musica a Palazzo

Every night in a Venetian palace a story is repeated. In truth, there are three stories and they are immense stories. This palace offers a new way of experiencing opera, and Rigoletto, La Traviata and The Barber of Seville are staged here. These opera-works are a travelling shows and each act is performed in the different halls of the palace. Not in the theater, then, where these stories are usually told: we are in the splendid Palazzo Barbarigo Minotto, overlooking the Grand Canal and which has original frescoes by Tiepolo inside.

These stories are not only heard by the audience: they are experienced, because the opera takes place around it. The audience is a witness to what is happening, a concrete witness, and is inside the scene. It touches and is touched by the buffoon that is Rigoletto, it participates in the refreshments Violetta offers to her guests. Audience reacts, sometimes casually, other times with more difficulty, to the glances of the actors who are used to looking into their eyes. And then, as if it were all natural, actors and audience physically move to different rooms from the first one. From the Tiepolo Room, one can find oneself in the Portego, the Central Hall, and again in the bedroom with the Alcove. The musicians also follow the course, leaving nothing to static.

Musica a Palazzo” leaves audience with is a mixture of emotions that cannot be held back. Some are moved, some cannot stifle a smile, some sigh. After the show is over, however, you cannot get rid of it right away, because it will have become entangled within you, as you have become pleasantly entangled inside it.
