A magnificent opera house and so historical! My wife and I had a box to ourselves to see my first live opera and it was a thrilling and unforgettable experience. If in Naples this is a must see if at all interested in opera.

Yes, you might get lucky- we saw opera there in early January. And if not that, they do the Nutcracker ballet right thru the holiday season.
We found that time of year to be quite busty in Naples- lots of Italian tourists
