Tour description

Please note that this performance is in Italian. Our price, however, covers the cost of your audio guide.

It’s for good reason the Sistine Chapel is one of Rome’s must-see highlights. Michelangelo’s world-famous frescoes and the mural artworks of the great Renaissance masters draw 6 million visitors each year. But as awe-inspiring as the Sistine Chapel is, what you’re seeing is only the end product. To truly appreciate the genius and scale of Michelangelo’s achievement, you need to know the story.

A sensorially stimulating journey through the Sistine Chapel's creation

Just a short distance from the Vatican, the Auditorium Conciliazione has become the permanent venue for the critically-acclaimed show: Giudizio Universale. Michelangelo and the Secrets of the Sistine Chapel. Lasting 60 minutes, the performance promises a true sensory feast. The show’s creator, Marco Balich, was the artistic director and producer of the Olympic Ceremonies of Rio (2016), Socchi (2014), and Turin (2006). Balich has already proven his pedigree when it comes to delivering large-scale performances combining 270° immersive projections, mind-blowing visuals, and movie-worthy soundtracks.

Giudizio Universale is an Italian production - as you might expect from the name. But while for the sake of authenticity Michelangelo's voiceover is in Italian, the audience can choose their narration from eight different languages. Giudizio Universale boasts a stellar cast and impressive list of musical stars - with the title song written by Sting. And while delivering unforgettable visuals it compromises nothing on accuracy. For the show has been created under the scientific advice and guidance of the Vatican Museums.
