Venice the Show al Teatro San Gallo

Discover Venice behind the mask

On stage at Teatro San Gallo every night since 29 October 2009 this entertaining show is probably one of the most engaging ways to discover the unique ‘Story of Venice’.

In this show within a show, Luigi, a costume maker, plays an ageing ‘Casanova’, dominated by his wife, Elena and nagged by his sister in law, Maria.

In this ‘endlessly’ entertaining situation Luigi is forever trapped in time in the dusty old theatre where he enlivens his life by sharing his amusing stories as an ultimate raconteur whilst, at the same time, he is trying to write his never to be completed book about the city he loved… and loves.

VENEZIA is an unique play: a combination of enjoyable and amusing theatrical entertainment, comedy, fiction, historical fact,, fine acting and integrated use of multi media that does not exist anywhere else, like the City itself.

Now with over 1400 performances since it started, this show has become the longest running show in Italy, ever… The show plays seven nights a week, 365 days of the year.

VENEZIA is a show for everybody and is addressed to an international audience.

The play is performed in English by an international cast and translated in seven languages; it has been described as: “Simply the best show in town”.

Every evening
1st may – 29th October 8:00 pm to 9:20 pm
30th October – 30th April 7:00 pm to 8:20 pm
