Enjoy the best of Venice - La Compania ticket offer
Venice was a cultural jewel. During its early Baroque heyday, it was home to the finest composers, who created lively music, virtuosic songs and highly expressive melodies with a directness of emotion to capture the heart.
With the stylish, lavish and marvellous music of Claudio Monteverdi along with the polished gems of his contemporaries, La Compañia will uplift you to the glorious higher state of the Italian Baroque.
