Corpo di Ballo del Teatro dell’Opera di Roma
The Ballet of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma performs several ballets a year in Rome. Big shows take place in the Teatro dell’Opera itself, but some ballets – often the newly choreographed pieces and those with more selective appeal – are put on in a smaller venue. Most recently this has been the Teatro Nazionale, just down the road from the main opera house. A ballet also usually forms part of the Teatro dell’Opera’s summer programme which takes place outdoors in the ruins of the Baths of Caracalla.
The Ballet doesn’t have a particularly high international profile, and in Italy is generally placed second in status after Milan’s La Scala. Celebrated ballerina Carla Fracci took over as Director in November 2000, and has worked to raise the Rome Ballet’s standing, while her presence in a remarkable number of major or enlarged roles is popular with audiences and good for publicity.
