Music and theatre at Lake Garda
Lake Garda offers numerous sports, entertainment and leisure activities as well as a varied cultural programme.
If you want to get to know the area as well as the art and history, you should take the opportunity of a fun evening in the theatre, at a concert or a gorgeous ballet.
The music and theatre scene of Lake Garda ranges from modern open-air concerts to artistically relevant theatre productions by troops from all over the world.
One of the most important theatres of Lake Garda is indeed the versatile Teatro Alberti in Desenzano del Garda. In a restored 19th-century building, spectators enjoy a variety of events throughout the year. Also, an excellent restaurant and a welcoming pizzeria are part of the Teatro, where you can meet for a social gathering before or after the performance.
Characteristic of the region around Lake Garda is the ancient amphitheatres, wherein the mild summer months there are still demonstrations and concerts. One example is the Teatro alle Grotte di Catullo (Theater of the Caves of Catullus) in Sirmione, where you will experience the magic of being able to watch a performance under the stars and in precisely the places where spectators sat centuries ago.
In the theatres and on the stages of Lake Garda, modern and visionary productions blend with historical pieces from Italian theatre.
Also noteworthy is the proximity of Lake Garda to the beautiful city of Verona with its famous Arena. Here one of the most important seasons of Italy takes place, with impressive productions of well-known operas such as Aida, Carmen or Nabucco. Moreover, there are always concerts with renowned Italian artists such as Adriano Celentano, Laura Pausini, Morandi and many more.
