Travelers will discover Venice together with a professional opera singer. The tour starts from San Marco because just before the place where the columns are, Otello once arrived exactly like Shakespeare and Giuseppe Verdi. We start talking about Othello and Verdi's music and shortly afterwards I will perform some tracks from Otello together with my colleagues Soprano and Tenore accompanied by a pianist. Travelers will have this experience before seeing a play at the Teatro La Fenice or at Musica a Palazzo / Palazzo Barbarigo.
