There is no mandatory dress code, but you are expected to dress up. A night at the opera is the time to wear the sparkly shoes and snazzy dress that you have been saving. Men should wear a nice shirt (button down with a collar), khakis or dress pants, and dress shoes, and ladies should choose between skirts or dresses, dress pants and accessories. The more modest the seats, the less formal your attire needs to be, but this is not the place for shorts, t-shirts, sweatpants, sneakers or flip flops. Ever.
So, it is highly recommended to dress in keeping with the decorum of the Theater, out of respect for the Theater and for other viewers.
The cloakroom service is free. Audience members are invited to deposit coats, umbrellas, cumbersome bags, backpacks and hats.
It is forbidden to smoke on the premises. This ban includes the use of electronic cigarettes.
Cameras, audio and video recording equipment cannot be used. Audience members are required to switch off mobile phones and watch alarms.
On performance evenings, the Bookshop and the Grand Café are open inside the theater.
At the end of the show, staff are available to contact Radiotaxi on your behalf. Tel: (+39) 0521 252562.
How to Get Here
The Parma “Giuseppe Verdi” Airport is located at ten minutes driving distance from the Teatro and provides direct connection with some national airports.
The Railway Station of Parma is a ten-minute walk from the Teatro Regio and the city center.
The station links Parma with the main national railway lines and high speed trains to Bologna, Milan and Reggio Emilia (Fast Train Mediopadana Station with Italobus).
You can reach Parma by car in different ways:
- take the highway A1 Milano – Bologna (Parma tollgate) or A15 Parma – La Spezia (Parma Ovest tollgate);
- use the main roads such as Via Emilia, Via Mantova, Via La Spezia e Via Cremonese, Via Colorno, Via Langhirano, Via Traversetolo;
The historical center of Parma is a Limited Traffic Zone (ZTL) controlled by cameras working every day, including non-working days and holidays. During the day the access to the center is allowed only to residents or to foreigners who have to reach the Hotel.
These regulations on Limited Traffic Zones and parkings in town are also applied for cars with foreign plates.
Located at the access points of the city, the exchange car parks are free and open 24 hours a day.
The pay and display Toschi car park is the closest and most convenient to access the Teatro Regio.
In line with our philanthropic mission, we firmly believe that it is also urgent to adopt a series of good practices that can reduce any form of waste and maximize the positive impact on the environment and on others.
We have therefore chosen to use the pre-order method not as a marketing strategy, but as a position that can bring value by responding to a real need.
These are items of the highest quality because of the craftsmanship, the attention to details, the reuse of the fabric scraps that have made the history of the Teatro Regio costumes and the sustainable timing in creating each piece. It is a slow process, full of awareness and this is what gives it an added value.
For this reason, delivery times will be reasonably extended compared to normal. But it will be worth it, you have our word.
