Bocelli,
Sicily 2019.

Teatro Antico, Taormina.

 
30th & 31st August 2019.

A unique concert in a unique setting ....
Andrea Bocelli, his son Matteo, and some surprise international star guests.

New hits, past hits, and a selection of most-loved operatic arias.
We've been selling packages for Andrea Bocelli's annual Tuscan concert for over 10 years. This is the first time we're offering them for this concert in Sicily.

Second date announced - 31st August 2019!

As almost all tickets for the first date have now pretty-much sold out (we have just a couple of packages remaining), the organisers have announced a second concert for the next day, Saturday the 31st of August 2019. The concert will be identical and we have again managed to arrange a limited number of packages for this second date.

A concert, and a concert setting, that require repeated visits to the adjective store.

The concert venue

First, the setting. The Teatro Antico di Taormina, Sicily is a truly extraordinary setting, a unique stage, and it has been for over 2000 years. Begun in the third century BC by the Greeks, this was no 'natural' ampitheatre - the mountain was carved into and more than 100,000 cubic metres of rock were excavated. The Romans, in turn, embellished and extended the theatre, hosting games and gladiatorial battles in what was once the musicians 'pit', transformed in time to become an arena floor.

Second only in size to the theatre at Syracuse, it is possibly the world's most loved, its stunningly beautiful location seeing it play host to opera, theatre, award ceremonies and lavish concerts since the 1950's.

The concert itself

Secondly, the concert. The backdrop to the stage bay be the beautiful ocean, but the backdrop to the concert is Andrea Bocelli's album 'Si' reaching number one in the UK and the USA, the first time an Italian artist has achieved this remarkable feat. The concert will feature Andrea's son, Matteo, and some yet-to-be-announced star guests of honour, and will see performances of the maestro's most loved and well known opera arias alongside some of his most famous international 'pop' hits.

The concert will begin at 9.30 PM on Friday the 30th of August 2019 (and now Saturday the 31st as well), and we're delighted to be offering accommodation bundles in several ticket areas - these are outlined and indicated on the map. Please be absoultely which date and ticket package you are ordering as they vary across the two dates.
Accommodation is provided in Taormina itself, and the packages include your concert tickets, accommodation and some provided meals and refreshments - details are specified in the individual selections. We have a very limited number of packages and demand is very, very high - orders are on a first-come, first-served basis!
