Directions to Teatro Massimo Bellini
The Teatro Massimo Bellini is an opera house in Catania, named after the local-born composer Vincenzo Bellini. It seats 1,200 and was inaugurated on 31 May 1890 with a performance of the composer's masterwork, Norma. The exterior of the house matches the distinctive Sicilian Baroque style of the neighboring buildings. Its marble foyer is ornate and stuccoed, and a statue of Bellini is located between the central arches. The beautiful red-plush interior includes the main floor seating and four tiers of boxes. Surrounding them, on the upper level, are unusual arched arcades. The painted ceiling depicts scenes from four of Bellini's most well-known operas.

The Teatro Massimo Bellini offers also guided tours from Tuesday to Saturday, 09.30 - 12.30h.
