TIMM Concerts at Todi Municipal Theater

In 2024, all of TIMM’s Concerts will take place at the beautiful “Teatro Comunale di Todi” (Todi Municipal Theater). The Theater is located literally a few steps away from the Hotel Fonte Cesia, and a two-minute walk from the Palazzo del Vignola, location of the masterclasses and practice facilities.

The “Teatro Comunale di Todi”  (Municipal Theater of Todi), designed by architect Carlo Gatteschi, is a historic Umbrian theater inaugurated on 14 August 1876 with the opera “Un Ballo in maschera” by Giuseppe Verdi. With its 499 seats (orchestra and 4 tiers of boxes) it ranks among the largest theaters in Umbria.

The Theater regularly hosts a prose season, opera, and dance shows.  TIMM is happy to have all its concerts housed in this magnificent venue!
