One of Italy’s most famous opera houses (it officially ranks third after La Scala in Milan and San Carlo in Naples), La Fenice opened in 1836, but was rebuilt after a devastating fire and reopened in 2003. The opera season runs late November through June, but there are also ballet performances and classical concerts. Tickets are expensive for the major productions; around 70–80€ for the gallery, and 100€–220€ for a decent seat (“listening” only seats with no view go for 15–30€, while obstructed-view seats are 25–45€).
