Lonely Planet review

Hang onto your prosecco and brace for impact: in palace salons, the soprano’s high notes imperil glassware, and thundering baritones reverberate through inlaid floors. During 1½ hours of selected arias from Verdi or Rossini, the drama progresses from receiving-room overtures to parlour duets overlooking the Grand Canal, followed by second acts in the Tiepolo-ceilinged dining room and bedroom grand finales.
