Teatro Verdi di Pisa
The Theatre dedicated to Giuseppe Verdi is the main theatrical space in Pisa, as well as one of the most beautiful traditional Italian theaters and one of the most successful examples of nineteenth-century theatrical architecture.
The initiative to give the city of Pisa a great theater was taken by some prominent citizens to give prestige to the city and replace the now cramped Ravvivati Theatre. The construction, between 1865 and 1867 was entrusted to the Venetian architect Andrea Scala who won the competition for the project. The Regio Teatro Nuovo was inaugurated on the evening of November 12, 1867 with Rossini’s opera William Tell.
The theater offers a rich program of opera, prose, dance and concerts throughout the year. It is possible to visit the Teatro Verdi with guided tours (preferably for groups) on the days when the theater is open and compatibly with programming requirements. Tickets for the performances can be purchased in various ways, online or at points of sale.
