Discover the Teatro Grande!

The Teatro Grande reopens its doors to visitors to reveal places, curiosities and its 300-year-long fascinating history.
In the first half of 2024 a rich calendar of dates will be organised, available online at teatatrogrande.it with the relevant booking procedures.

The Teatro Grandereproposes the more traditional Discovering the Teatro Grande tours scheduled in February, March, May and June. Through this tour (duration 60 minutes, full price €13, reduced price €8 for Under30, free admission for Under7) it is possible to admire the Ridotto of the Theatre – one of the most evocative architectural wonders of the city of Brescia – the Sala Grande with its unmistakable layout and the splendid Sala delle Statue which, with its more than 200 years of history, has recently undergone restoration.

Che favola di Teatro! is the itinerary that reveals some of the most evocative stories of Brescia’s Teatro Grande, preserved in an ancient revolving display case that children will be invited to operate. Seated in the spaces of the theatre, participants listen to stories and curiosities and can invent new stories surrounded by the magical atmosphere of the Grande. The tour (€10 per participant and €5 for each accompanying adult) lasts 60 minutes and takes place on 16 March and 1 June at 3 pm. The presence of at least one adult for every 2 minors is required for participation.

With the Caccia al tesoro, we invite boys and girls to discover the wonders of the theatre through quizzes and small games of skill. The experience concludes with a snack at the Caffè del Teatro Grande – Berlucchi for the little explorers and girl explorers. The tour (€15 per participant and €5 for each accompanying adult) lasts 60 minutes and takes place on Saturday 2 March and Saturday 18 May at 3 pm. The presence of at least one adult for every 2 minors is also required for this activity.
