Built in 1792 in Neoclassical style the theatre was at that time one of the many private theatres for theatrical and opera performing.

Rossini’s Tancredi, Sigismondo and Semiramide, Bellini’s I Capuleti e i Montecchi (The Capulets and the Montagues) and Beatrice di Tenda, Donizetti’s Belisario (Belisarius), Pia de’ Tolomei, Maria de Rudenz, Verdi’s Ernani, Attila, Rigoletto, La traviata and Simon Boccanegra were staged here in the nineteenth century.

The numbers of La Fenice are impressive: more than one hundred opera performances per year are hosted in this leading creative venue. With a seating capacity for over one thousand people, the Fenice boasts excellent acoustics, a 98-member orchestra and 66-person opera chorus, a dedicated local audience and a large international following.
