Theatres and concerts
Of dramatic arts, music and first class entertainment
Ever since I can remember Bolzano has been home to theatres and concerts. But with the Free University of Bolzano opening its doors in October 1997, the number of cultural events in Bolzano has increased even more.
Here you will find plays of all different kinds and forms. Ranging from traditional farces to sophisticated dramas or cabarets, the range of plays is simply huge.
By the way: Have you ever heard about the Busoni Competition? This international piano competition is partly opened to the public and those who are interested in it will definitely be surprised.

> Teatro Comunale di Bolzano (City Theatre) at Piazza Verdi is a building whose architectural beauty is a frequent matter of debate. The theatre hosts plays and performances by both local and foreign theatre groups.
