Experience Opera in a Princess's Palace. Limited Seats Available.

The Secret Apartment of Princess Doria Pamphilj, a treasure of art and history, opens its doors for a select few.

Encircled by masterpieces of art and the echoes of nobility, guests will be serenaded by world-class voices resonating through rooms that have hosted generations of aristocracy. Each note of the performance is a thread in the fabric of history, in a space where every detail—from the classical furnishings to the opulent artworks—whispers of a bygone era of splendor.

In the very halls where the Doria Pamphilj family has celebrated the arts for centuries, you will experience a concert that is both a tribute and a continuation of this legacy. Each piece has been selected to echo the architectural and artistic wonders that surround you, creating an immersive performance that is as educational as it is enchanting.

Our carefully curated repertoire takes our guests on an auditory exploration through Italy’s rich musical tradition, with compositions that resonate with the very essence of the country’s storied history. The evening’s performance, led by a sublime soprano whose voice is as captivating as the narratives woven into each aria, is complemented by the melodic whispers of a transverse flute and the resonant strumming of a baroque guitar. The deep, sonorous plucks of the theorbo add a layer of baroque richness, creating a multi-sensory tribute to the Italian masters of melody.

With exclusivity as our hallmark, attendance is intimately limited, ensuring a personal connection to the music and the majestic surroundings.

Reserve your tickets now and be one of the few to experience opera in the private quarters of Princess Doria Pamphilj. It’s not just a performance; it’s an event that transcends the ordinary, becoming a cherished memory of your Roman holiday.

Princess’ secret apartment

The concert hall resides within the Secret Apartment of Princess Gesine Doria Pamphilj. These breathtaking rooms, brimming with art and culture, are meticulously preserved and continue to be inhabited by the family.

The Secret Apartment of Princess Gesine in Palazzo Doria Pamphilj provides a matchless backdrop for opera. This space, where Italian artistry meets elevated musical expression, offers an opera experience that is both intimate and grand: guests are not mere observers but participants in a tradition that reverberates through the corridors of history. The apartment, typically a private sanctuary, opens its doors for an evening where each note reflects the rich heritage of the Doria Pamphilj family.

Included in this experience is a guided tour in English of the apartments. The tour offers insights into the art pieces, architectural design, and the rich history of the Doria Pamphilj family. This illuminating tour enhances the overall experience and sets the stage for the opera performance.

Palazzo Doria Pamphilj

Palazzo Doria Pamphilj is a 16th-century palace housing the Doria Pamphilj Gallery, a remarkable private art collection that has been amassed over 500 years. The palace itself is a blend of art and history, reflecting the nobility, politics, and unions between some of the most important Italian noble families, including the Doria, Pamphilj, Aldobrandini, and more. The gallery, at the heart of the palace, is home to most of the masterpieces of the Doria Pamphilj family's private art collection, including paintings from the 15th to the 18th century. The current appearance of the gallery is the result of a renovation ordered by Prince Camillo Pamphilj junior in the 18th century, and the paintings are arranged according to a late 18th-century arrangement, allowing visitors to enjoy a unique approach to the art collection in the atmosphere of that time.

The palace and its gallery are a testament to the city's rich cultural and historical heritage, making it a must-visit for those interested in history, art, and architecture.

Guests will have the opportunity to visit the gallery either before or after the performance, by purchasing a ticket at the gallery's entrance.

Intellectually fulfilling and fun. It may not seem very touristic, but it would take your visit to Rome to another level.

Erkin Ozel, Turkey

The concert would have been enough with just the knowledgeable tour of the church. Add beautiful baroque music to that and I was in heaven.
