Teatro Argentina

This is one of the oldest theaters in Rome. It was built in 1732 by the architect Theoldi on commission from the Sforza Cesarini family and has been restored many times over the years. It became the premises of the Teatro Sabile company of Rome in 1994, currently directed by Mario Martone. By means of collaboration with other Italian companies, and as a result of the interesting technical possibilities the stage offers, the program is varied, with some large-scale productions. Cultural initiatives, such as conferences, debates and the reading of classical texts, often take place during the winter months in its foyer.

Teatro Quirino

Commissioned by Prince Maffeo Sciarra for the production of operettas and light comedies, this theater was constructed entirely of wood in 1871. It was rebuilt in stone at the beginning of the century and owes its present appearance to the architect Piacentinin who was responsible for its restoration in the 1950s. The stage has played host to many famous Italian actors including Fregoli, Petrolini, Visconti and Gassman. Today the Quirino is managed by the Italian Theater Board and mainly offers high-quality classical and contemporary theater productions. A particularly interesting initiative is Dopo il sipario during which the audience can talk and mingle with the actors. The theater also houses seminars, meetings, conferences and art exhibitions.

Teatro dell'Opera

Founded in the late 19th Century by the entrepreneur Costanzi, this theater was for a long time considered to be one of the most prestigious opera theaters in Europe. Having gone through some difficult years, the Teatro dell'Opera has recently returned to its status as a primary venue for opera, ballet and symphonic music seasons. During the summer, opera is staged at the lovely Terme di Caracalla or the beautiful Piazza di Siena in the Villa Borghese gardens.

Teatro alle Terme di Caracalla

Literately translated as "theater at the baths of Caracalla", Teatro alle Terme di Caracalla is so named for its proximity to the ruins of the Baths of Caracalla. Originally constructed in 212 CE, today the extensive remains of what was once a busy bathhouse create a dramatic backdrop for the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma's summer season. Rome's contrasts come together harmoniously under the summer sky in this magnificent venue.
