Established in 1996 with the aim of recreating the artistic tradition of the Republica Serenissima’s most splendid period, the I Musici Veneziani Orchestra, is formed of some of the most skillful Venetian musicians and singers.
Specializing in the interpretation of classical-operatic musical production from the 1700 and 1800’s, the Orchestra has an excellent reputation for an authentic sound and brilliant interpretation ensuring that each concert is an unforgettable experience.
The performances are enhanced by fabulous period costumes and antique jewels created from original sketches from the 1700’s. Performances are held at the Scuola Grande di San Teodoro in the magnificent Capitoline Hall – the most famed private concert hall in Venice today.
The I Musici Veneziani Orchestra has performed over 5000 concerts and is still the only classical orchestra in the world where the musicians wear baroque style dresses created from original designs.
