The Philharmonic Theatre has scheduled numerous operas for the next season, including opera titles, special events, and varied collaborations. In addition, after nine years, ballet will make a triumphant return to the upcoming edition. While waiting for the 2024 Artistic Season to start, the Fondazione Arena di Verona has announced the first details on carnet and subscription renewals and sales. 

Among the dates to note for those who want to renew their subscriptions is October 3, when sales will start for both the opera and ballet seasons and the symphonic season at the Philharmonic Theatre. Confirmation of season 2023 subscribers will continue until November 14, while new subscriptions can be purchased starting from November 15, while availability lasts.

Subscriptions, carnets, and Fridays in the Stalls at the Philharmonic Theater

Memberships to the Opera and Ballet Seasons run from 84 to 318 euros, depending on the sector, while Symphonic Season subscriptions range from 73 to 182 euros. Fondazione Arena, on the other hand, offers two varieties of carnet. The three-entry carnet for the Opera Season and the four-entry carnet for the Symphonic Season, both of which allow you to choose from the different scheduled performances. Another option is Venerdì in Platea – Friday in the Stalls -, which includes eight acts with prices ranging from 169 to 243 euros, including operas and concerts.

Exclusive evenings for subscribers

Both subscriptions include one entry to the Arena Opera Festival 2024. Subscribers to the Opera and Ballet Season will have access to the classic Aida on August 22, while those to the Symphonic Season can attend the evening event dedicated to Beethoven’s 9th Symphony on August 11. But it does not stop there. Both forms of subscription will have access to a 30 percent discount on the purchase of a ticket to the 101st Arena di Verona Opera Festival 2024.

There is also a Poltronissima Gold ticket for one of the two aforementioned events for those who purchase the Opera+Sinfonia maxi subscription.

The Symphonic Season and Opera Season programs

Ballet returns to the Philharmonic Theatre for the first time in nine years, allowing the Opera Season to achieve six appointments, including five opera titles. It all begins in January with The Magic Flute, a new co-production of the Salzburg genius, and continues in February with La Rondine, a tribute to Puccini, whose 100th death anniversary is being commemorated this year. Another debut with Il Campiello, a little-known but much-appreciated classic written by Ermano Wolf-Ferrari, is the most accomplished of Goldoni’s comedies. After the summer stop, it will be the turn of Verdi’s Stifelio, which will be followed by Rossini’s La Cenerentola in November. Finally, in December, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake will be performed.

The new Symphonic Season features ten performances, beginning in February with a program entirely dedicated to Bruckner (the Fourth “Romantic” Symphony and Te Deum), continuing with an Easter concert with soloists, chorus, and orchestra (Rossini’s Stabat Mater), and expanding into the rich symphonic spring with the complete symphonies and concertos of Brahms in four appointments, interspersed with another choral cimento: May is capped off by an all-Strauss concert, extending the Arena Foundation’s artistic journey in previous seasons. Two performances wrap up the fall season: one features chamber ensembles ranging from jazz to Wagner, and the second features Mahler’s “heavenly” Fourth Symphony performed by the classical symphony orchestra.
