I Musici Veneziani
The story behind the Orchestra I Musici Veneziani
Established in 1996 with the aim of recreating the artistic tradition of the Republica Serenissima’s most splendid period, the I Musici Veneziani Orchestra, is formed of some of the most skillful Venetian musicians and singers.
Specializing in the interpretation of classical-operatic musical production from the 1700 and 1800’s, the Orchestra has an excellent reputation for an authentic sound and brilliant interpretation ensuring that each concert is an unforgettable experience.
The performances are enhanced by fabulous period costumes and antique jewels created from original sketches from the 1700’s. Performances are held at the Scuola Grande di San Teodoro in the magnificent Capitoline Hall – the most famed private concert hall in Venice today.
The I Musici Veneziani Orchestra has performed over 5000 concerts and is still the only classical orchestra in the world where the musicians
wear baroque style dresses created from original designs.
Costumes like tailored jewellery
The fabulous jewel enriched period costumes, headgear and majestic mantles are created by the celebrated Atelier Nicolao from original 18th century designs.
An intricate knowledge of period fabrics, respect for the cut and constant research for true historic authenticity have brought many awards to the founder of the atelier, Mr Stefano Nicolas, making him one of the most important theatrical dressmakers both in Venice and internationally.VIew all Concerts
