Teatro Sferisterio of Macerata


All the best of opera under the stars

Located in the city's historic center, Macerata's Sferisterio is a magnificent semicircular arena that was formerly used for the ball game with an armband. Today, it is a true open-air opera house and  venue for cultural festivals and concerts. Giuseppe Verdi's Aida was the first performance to be staged here in 1921, and leading the way for the arena's new, enduring path of opera and entertainment. With 2,500 seats and perfect acoustics, this venue has seen some of the most famed singers and conductors take turns on its stage. The Sferisterio is known for the Macerata Opera Festival, a summer opera season in which opera, film and symphonic repertoire come together to create a true cultural and entertainment event under the stars.
