CHICAGO, April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Italy boasts a wealth of historic opera houses and attending a live performance should be on the trip schedule of any traveler. The opera season usually ends in May or June, but several opera companies offer outdoor performances during summer, therefore it is possible to find events year-round. Select Italy (http://selectitaly.com), the online travel company, has one of the most complete online portfolios of opera tickets, including those at the most exclusive venues of the summer.
The summer season comes with a rich schedule of outdoor operas, ballets and concerts, held in enchanting settings – such as arenas and archaeological ruins. Among the most distinguished are the Arena di Verona, an ancient Roman Amphitheater and the largest opera venue in the world; and the Baths of Caracalla, the second largest public bathhouse in Rome between 212 and 216 AD, and today's summer performance venue of Teatro dell'Opera. Other options to experience concerts and opera outdoors are the traditional Summer Festivals such as the Sferisterio Opera Festival in Macerata, the Puccini Festival in Tuscany and the Ravello Concert Society in the Amalfi Coast.
Finally, this summer it is also possible to experience many indoor venues because La Scala in Milan, the Orchestra Verdi at the Auditorium di Milano and La Fenice in Venice, have in schedule special performances for the Expo, the global event that will take place in Milan from May 1st to October 31st .
"We always recommend booking opera tickets far in advance. Italian theaters are smaller than those in the US and therefore there are less seats available," says Justin Anderson, Manager of Operations & Client Services, "Though for the larger, outdoor venues, you still can find acceptable seats often just a few weeks from the performance date. Also, remember that formal attire is usually required for both men and women, especially when sitting in the higher priced seating categories and when attending opening night performances."
