It was the first Italian opera house to be built with superposed tiers of boxes. It is the theatre where Antonio Meucci, who was employed there as a stage technician, invented an acoustic system based on a mechanical device to communicate with his colleagues during the change of scenes. The first telephone in history was created in one of Italy’s temples of opera music: a magical place, rich in history and timeless stories.
The Pergola Theatre invites you to visit it’s hidden spaces, the spaces that were once part of the Theatre’s city: a large self-sufficient workshop where you could find all those who worked and produced for the stage. It was were the theatre really lived, day and night, a crossroads, a meeting place, filled with thousands of masks and magic. It is the place that nowadays lives thank to the knowledge of our props men and modern technology like the “ice caveau”, a special bank-vault-like that the guests have the opportunity to discover. The tour ends with the view from heaven: the rooftoop view of the stage.
