Teatro Antico in Taormina is an ancient Greek theatre built in the 3rd century BC. During our visit we were lucky enough to get tickets to the ballet Carmen accompanied by the Massimo Bellini Theatre Orchestra of Catania. The outdoor concerts, ballets, or operas are held during the balmy summer months. Check the website taoarte.it often to check for posted performances. It will be one of the highlights of your trip to Sicily. The ancient theatre is small enough that almost every seat has excellent views to the stage. Prior to the show head next door to the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo for a pre-show cocktail on the terrace with sparkling views in every direction.
