Teatro La Fenice
Teatro La Fenice is an opera house, situated in Venice. It has gained worldwide recognition and success. Being the site of many operatic premieres, Teatro La Fenice is extremely popular and famous in the European region.
Despite being burnt down into ashes in 1996, the theatre has re-emerged in 2004 to its original magnificence. La Fenice is considered as the official theater of the high-class of Venice.
The word Teatro La Fenice translates into The Phoenix into English. As its name already suggests - rising from the ashes (Phoenix), the theatre has encountered such a problem twice. Before shedding light on the two disasters the theater had to face, let us first understand how Teatro La Fenice took shape and came into its very existence.
During the mid 1700s, Venice"s leading theater had been San Benedetto Theatre. It had been enjoying a forty-year of success. However, in 1774, a fire struck into the San Benedetto and burnt it completely.
Once it was re-built, the company managers and the owners of the facility (the Veniers) had a dispute regarding its legal rights. The Veniers won the case and as a result, the theatre company decided to build a new and one-of-a-kind opera house on the Campo San Fantin.
The construction of the new project began in 1790, and was completed in two years, by 1792. This new theatre was named La Fenice, keeping in mind the company"s efforts and survival; bearing both the fire and the legal dispute issues.
The opening opera was given by Giovanni Paisiello entitled I Giuochi di Agrigento, on the theater"s inauguration on the 16th of May, 1792. From there onwards, La Fenice started gaining much appreciations, first from the local critics, and then by the critics from all around the world.
During the 19th century, La Fenice had been so praised that it ultimately obtained a European repute, and many popular Italian composers, such as Gioachino Antonio Rossini and Domenico Gaetano Maria Donizetti graced the stage at the theater.
A disaster occurred again in 1836 when La Fenice was once again burnt down to ashes due to an unexpected break-out of fire. The architect-team-of-brothers, Tommaso Meduna and Giambattista Meduna provided a design to rebuild the theater, thus La Fenice was quickly built again and once again, it rose from ashes and re-opened by the end of 1837.
One of the most influential Italian composers of the 19th century, Giuseppe Verdi, got associated with La Fenice in 1844, which added in bringing more success to the theater. The theater shut down its doors during the First World War, and re-opened after that and again became the main spot for much of the region"s top-notch events and activities.
Then in 1996, the theater again got utterly destroyed by fire. This time around, the fire breakout was no accident but a well planned act. The culprits were found out by the court in 2001, and the reconstruction of the building began.
Teatro La Fenice opened in 2004 with the same beautiful architectural set and design, but with a slightly brighter color scheme.
Today, Teatro La Fenice serves as a site for the top caliber events and artists of Venice, along with artists and performers coming from other parts of the world.
