THE FIRST OPERA HOUSE IN THE WORLD
This is an amazing project to reconstruct the original early 17th century Venice Teatro San Cassiano, and with it to restore historically-informed Baroque opera to the city
In 1637, the Teatro San Cassiano gave public opera to the world. This momentous act sparked a global opera boom with Venice as its celebrated capital, which would ensure that forevermore the Teatro San Cassiano would be revered as the world’s first public opera house.
Today, there is no monument, no celebration, no theatre. It’s time to celebrate Baroque opera in Venice. It’s time to celebrate Venice’s greatest gift to the world.
