OPERA IN A PALACE
The Opera is a travelling show and each act is set in a different hall of one of the most fascinating Venetian palaces: Palazzo Barbarigo Minotto.
In the Baroque era, Venetian Palaces were places where music was an integral part of parties and receptions.
The Cantate or allegorical serenades were performed together with Opera although with a commemorative purpose.
Opera performances in the palaces were only for a selected audience and limited to the friends of the noble family who arranged the event.
Musica a Palazzo is located in Palazzo Barbarigo Minotto, on the Grand Canal, alongside the “Giglio” vaporetto (waterbus) stop.
The access is from the mainland, from Fondamenta Duodo or Barbarigo, on the main walking route connecting Piazza San Marco and the Accademia Bridge.
