The Teatro Filarmonico is the main opera house of Verona and one of the leading opera houses of Europe. Construction of the opera house began in 1716 and lasted 13 years. The opening night saw La Fida Ninfa by Vivaldi performed by the libretto Scipio Maffei. Word spread and the opera season became famous until disaster struck on 21st January 1749 when fire spread through the building. Re-building began and the opera house was re-opened in 1754. Again disaster struck on 23rd February 1945 when the building was again destroyed under the Anglo-American bombing. It was announced that the theatre would be rebuilt in exactly the way it was before. After years of work it was inaugurated once more in 1975 with the opera Falstaff by Antonio Salieri. Today the theatre still hosts the winter season works, ballet and concerts.
