As the country's largest theater, the neo-classical Teatro Massimo has loomed large in the opera, ballet, and classical music scene since opening in 1897. It was also site of the culminating scene of Godfather III, which attracts a number of fans as well. The coveted venue now hosts top-of-the-line performances on more than 140 nights per year.
