What to expect from Rome Opera Concerts

The Rome Opera Concerts style

We are quality addicted and we trust in the real Italian Style

The Italian Style is made of astonishing creativity and abundance so, if during the Aperitivo which follows the concert you like our prosecco please ask for some more. No problem if you want one more glass, not at all.

We don't want the spectators complaining about paying different fares for sitting in the First Row or in the Seventh, because even the Last One is so close to the artists.

The point is only to understand if you prefer to have a more inclusive glance from a thirty feet distance or if you want to stay in front of the musicians just at a three feet distance.
Our venue is small and intimate and nevertheless allows up to eighty people.

Our aim is to allow you to live an experience as it was during the nineteenth century Grand Tour.

We want you have something like a private concert in which you can nearly touch the performers and so be involved in something we could call a 3D concert.

Giovanni and Alessandro are used to ten times larger venues in their concerts (apart from the TV shows).

Giovanni performed in an Open Air concert in Bologna with the Soprano Katia Ricciarelli having four thousand people crowded in a big Piazza, and Alessandro sang in some of the major Italian and European opera houses, among which the Teatro Comunale in Florence, the Teatro Regio in Turin, the Opéra-Comique in Paris.

Why a recital with piano accompaniment?

In the greatest seasons of concerts (Metropolitan NY, Covent Garden London, Santa Cecilia Rome, Scala Milan, etc.) a singers concert will be accompanied only by complete orchestra or piano solo. No string quartets, strings and piano and so on.
That's the state of the art!

From Rome Concerts to Rome Opera Concerts

To be more easily found on the Web

During 2020 we have decided to change our brand from "Rome Concerts" to "Rome Opera Concerts" and consequently to move our website from the "romeconcerts.org" domain to the "romeoperaconcerts.com" domain.

Since we have always enjoyed a close and friendly bond with our audience, we have often been told by customers that it was difficult to find us on the Web and especially to find us again if they did not note the result of the search carried out on Google or on other engines of research.

In fact, when you search for "rome concerts" Google shows all the concerts - of any kind - that you can attend in Rome, and not just classical or opera concerts.

So in almost all the searches we were confused in the overall offer of Rome concerts - along with pop, country, rock, etc. - that is, together with genres very different from ours and very far from what our audience expected to find.

So we thought that "Rome Opera Concerts" would be a more recognizable new brand, but still similar to our original name "Rome Concerts".

And finally, the addition of the word "opera", in addition to making our attention to Italian opera better understood, should allow us to find ourselves much more easily on the Web with searches such as "rome opera".
