The spectacular setting of the Verona Arena, built in the 1st century AD in the very elegant Piazza Brà, this year too it hosts many musical events that attract both the Italian and the foreign public.
The tradition began in 1913, when the tenor Giovanni Zenatello thought of celebrating the centenary of Giuseppe Verdi’s birth by staging Aida in the imposing Arena. The exceptional acoustics of the amphitheater perfectly restored Verdi’s notes, and since then has been a success that is repeated every year.
Since then it has been a rise in the number of  spectators and representations: operas, ballet shows, recitals but also concerts.


Events at Verona Arena

The programming runs from June to September, and is carefully planned to allow the viewing of more shows on subsequent days.
Not only classical music, in recent decades the Arena is also very popular with international rock stars such as Adèle, Paul McCartney, Sting, One Direction, Carlos Santana, REM, Eric Clapton, the Who and the Italian myths like Zucchero and Ligabue that they are just some of the big names that have held concerts in a scenario, that of the arena, extraordinary.
