No Italian city would be complete without a theatre. Genova is no exception. Built in 1872 and still standing after being hit twice during the second world war, this impressive building located in Piazza De Ferrari has held space for entertaining kings, queens, locals and tourists for performances of opera, ballet, orchestral music, and recitals. Completely rebuilt and refurbished, Carlo Felice is a good example of theatrical architecture and interior design. One of few excellent opera houses in Italy. Inaugurated on April 7th 1828 with the opera 'Bianca e Fernando' by Vincenzo Bellini performances continue - with the 2021/2022 season upon us.
