Teatro Communale Alighieri


Teatro Comunale Alighieri

Opera in the honour of Dante

Instead of restoring the Teatro Comunicativo once it began to show its age, the city authorities decided to build a new theatre on what is now known as Piazza Garibaldi in September 1840. Teatro Comunale Alighieri was built by the Venetian architect brothers Tommaso and Giambattista Meduna. Named in honour of Dante Alighieri, who died and is buried in Ravenna, it was opened on 15 May 1852 with a performance of Giacomo Meyerbeer’s opera "Robert le diable". At the time of its inception, the theatre with an 830-seat auditorium was regarded the most modern opera in the world. The neoclassical front is supported by four imposing pillars and a portico with statues of the four muses. The theatre is home to lesser known and rarely performed operas during the annual Ravenna Festival taking place in June and July.
