The Orchestra I Musici Veneziani was formed in 1996 and owes its prestigious name to the carefully considered selection of some of the most accomplished of Venetian virtuosos. The Orchestra pays tribute to Vivaldi performing the "Four Seasons" and, with Sopranos, Mezzo-Sopranos, Tenors and Baritones internationally acclaimed, performs "Baroque and Opera," the most beautiful arias of the Baroque period.

The concerts, enhanced by exquisite 18th costumes and jewerly, are performed in the wonderful Salone Capitolare, on the first floor of the Scuola Grande di San Teodoro in Rialto, where in addition I Musici Veneziani enact the most famous and beloved Opera of the great Giuseppe Verdi: "La Traviata".

The Scuola Grande di San Teodoro, dedicated to the first patron of Venice, was built from 1580 on the initiative of the brotherhood made up of merchants and artisans who, at that time, was a guest at the Church of San Salvador. The initial plan by Simone Sorella, later was expanded by Francesco and Tommaso Contin.

The Salone Capitolare was designed by Baldassare Longhena and adorned with paintings from the XVII and XVIII century by Vassilacchi, Jacopo Palma il Giovane, Balestra, Bassano. Born with a social purpose, charitable and education, became a flour store, public dormitory, headquarters of the political, commercial museum and cinema.

In 1999 the Orchestra I Musici Veneziani began to perform its Concert Seasons in it and it became the most prestigious Concert Hall in Venice.

  • I loved it, the theme was Vivaldi 4 seasons and it was great. I would definitely reccomend it!
  • I'm not a big fan of classical music but this show is awesome. The lead violinist is awesome and really captures your attention with his passionate playing. I just wish I could've stay another night and watch their other show too. Bravo!!!
