Opera in a Roman Quarry

By Staff writer, 2011-09-09
Opulent landscape, great opera and culinary delights – an event of sensory pleasures in St. Margarethen.

After 2,000 years of sandstone extraction, an old Roman quarry takes on an odd resemblance to a monumental opera set. What better place to host an actual opera? Thus was the rational for the St. Margarethen Opera, founded in 1996, which draws 200,000 attendees to Europe's largest natural stage each summer. The open-air performances feature not only international opera stars and productions, but also jazz and pop greats and a children's fairytale opera each year, for younger audiences.

Now you can travel to this amazing auditorium and watch live opera by courtesy of the UltraLuxe Cinema in GardenWalk, Anaheim.

You may already have missed “La Traviata”, but three more spectacular operas have yet to be screened: Carmen, Sept 11/12th; The Mikado, Sept 18-22, and Aida, Sept 25-26.

Just as memorable will be the magnificent natural environment, the moonlit set and the sheer scale of the breathtaking rock formations. Yes, we will miss the culinary delicacies abound in the newly designed Foyer Park, while various vendors offer the region's outstanding wines, but you can still dine out at the theatre and have a grandstand view of the Disney fireworks.
