On 22 July 2014, starting at 22.00, Roberto Bolle and Friends will dance on one of the most awe-inspiring stages in the world, surrounded by a 2,000 year-old construction, and under the night sky. The Arena di Verona, when there’s no rain, is a magical place to be.
Ticket prices start at 17 Euros, squashed at the side on the top step. If you’d rather see the gala front-on then 129 Euros will get you into the front seats.
Booking is already open, and early birds can grab a ticket here.
