There are many ways to have a dinner in Rome, as there are many restaurants: you can eat Cucina Romana, you can have Chinese food in Rome, but nothing can be compared to a dinner with an Italian opera show. My tours in Rome is succesfully experimenting this type of night sightseeing of the Eternal City and, believe us, customers like it.
Among the other achievements Italians are proud of, the Italian musical tradition spans over a period of almost half millennium.
Venice begun to share its musical tradition in the sixteenth century opening its Teatro San Cassiano for the first time to the public. Its first shows were musical interpretations of Greek and Roman mythological stories.
In the eighteenth century, at the peak of the Enlightenment movement, music genre shifted towards more intimate compositions and preferred the celebration of universal ideals, such as friendship, marriage, and absolute obedience to the king or queen.
During the Unification of Italy (1848-1870) Romanticism fostered another completely different type of Opera Music: “Arias” of that time dug more into the passion and relationships of each individual, resulting quite often into a tragic ending. Giuseppe Verdi, Gioacchino Rossini and Giacomo Puccini are the most influential opera masters of this period and these are the authors that My Tours in Rome presents on its musical tours.
Our tour at night starts with a pick up at the hotel by bus: after having acquainted with you, we will take you to the restaurant where you can have a great meal based on the Roman cuisine. In the restuarant you will listen to the most popular opera musical themes while you dine and then the tour will proceed by bus with the panoramic lecture of Rome and its main monuments.
