Performance · Concert / Show
The Teatro Carignano (Carignano Theatre) is a theatre in Turin and one of the oldest and most important theatres in Italy. Designed by Benedetto Alfieri, it is located opposite the Palazzo Carignano. Building commenced in 1752 and the theatre was inaugurated the following year with a performance of Baldassare Galuppi's opera, Calamità de' cuori. Much of the theatre was destroyed in a fire in 1786, but it was rebuilt in a few months using Alfieri's original plans. Since then it has undergone several renovations. Although today it is primarily used for performances of plays, in the past it was an important opera house. The theatre is owned by the City of Turin but administered by the theatre company, Teatro Stabile di Torino, and is one of the company's principal performing venues.

  • A really beautiful antique theater. The seats are really difficult to buy, it usually gets full or only the bad seats remain.  more »
  • A very beautiful theatre indeed. Managed to get tickets last minute. A spectacle inside and outside in a wonderful location near so many beautiful bars and restaurants.  more »
  • Loved it, beautifully designed. Friendly staff. If you want to watch the show in a relax way and want to see the whole stage, try getting to sit on zero floor or leaving the private seating upto 5 balconies from left to Right. Else you cannot have proper view of stage.
  • Wonderful venue, friendly staff and quality performances
