Trieste, 22nd of June 2021: The Teatro Verdi di Trieste once again offers operas with audiences present, after a long halt due to limitations caused by Covid-19. We reopen with La Traviata, by Giuseppe Verdi, on stage from the 25th of June, a melodrama in three acts to a libretto by Francesco Maria Piave by the play La Dame aux camélias by Alexandre Dumas son.

La Traviata officially opens the theatre’s 2021-2022 season, after Stabat Mater on the 12th of June, the special concert, dedicated to the victims of the pandemic, on invitation, reserved for people who worked on the frontline during the health emergency. Throughout the whole year, the theatre put on shows behind closed doors, broadcast on Telequattro.

The Verdi and La Traviata: a long history ties this opera to the theatre; on stage 32 times, in full, for a total of 224 performances. The first being in 1856 and the last in 2018. La Traviata will be on stage Friday 25th of June and Saturday 26th of June at 19:30, Sunday 27th of June at 20h, Tuesday 29th of June at 19:30. Then, on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd of July at 19:30.
Stalls redesigned: in the last few months, the seats have been redefined, for the benefit of greater social distancing, and with the restoration of the historical central corridor, which brings the theatre back to its origins. The new layout guarantees seating that is more comfortable for the audience and, most importantly, that helps ensure the safety measures in place. In this way, it also allowed for the creation of two seats for the disabled in wheelchairs, for whom, so far, access to the stalls was not possible.
Safety measures: the maximum capacity is fixed at 500 spectators. It is compulsory for everybody to wear an ffp2 or ffp3 mask. Temperature measurements at the entrance are expected.
Tickets: The box office is open from Tuesday to Saturday 9:00 - 16:00. Sunday 9:00 – 13:30. Mondays and holidays closed. You can also email us at email@example.com
