The story of the Opera House 

In 1996 a mysterious but devastating fire turned the opera house into ashes. Donations from all parts of the world reached Venice and La Fenice like a real Phoenix was reconstructed on its original place and according to its original site. The opera house was reopened in 2003 and ever since the opera season is full from January to July and from September to October. Travelers are welcome to tour the opera house with advance booking.
