  • See master painter Michelangelo's work come to life in a cutting-edge stage show which mixes performances from actors, dancers, and acrobats with immersive 4K projections, multichannel surround sound, and explosive pyrotechnic effects
  • Enjoy an evening of spectacular entertainment, directed by Marco Balich (famed for his incredible Olympic opening ceremonies), starring Pierfrancesco Favino and with original music by Sting
  • Discover the untold story of the Sistine Chapel and enter the mind of Michelangelo as you learn about the creation of the world's most famous fresco

Enter the mind of one of history's greatest artists in a stage spectacular that combines actors, dancers, and acrobats with explosive pyrotechnics and stunning 4K projections. Produced by the team behind the Rio Olympics opening ceremony and with original music by Sting, it's a show as unique as the Sistine Chapel itself.

Take your seats and prepare to be thoroughly blown away: Giudizio Universale is a show that's like nothing else on the planet. Delving deep into the history of the Sistine Chapel, it explores the incredible creative processes that gave the world an eternal masterwork.

With scientific input from the Vatican Museum, Giudizio Universale is as informative as it is captivating, and Marco Balich's direction ensures a level of bombast to rival his eye-popping Olympic ceremonies.

Immersive 270° 4K projections and multichannel surround sound transform the custom-equipped venue into a palace of the imagination, with Michelangelo's thoughts and ideas taking flight above and around the audience.

So leave your expectations at the door and settle in for a show that will take your breath away, and then some.

Very moving presentation. My kids (10 & 14) understand a great deal more about the frescoes themselves and little of the history of when and why they were painted. Our family enjoyed it very much.

Performers were excellent and the projections were a great way to better appreciate the artwork.

A wonderful audio visual and sensory immersive production bringing some of the highlights of Michelangelo's career to life. Fantastic music, dance, visual spectacle and a welcome relief from walking around Rome. Uplifting, would highly recommend.

Amazing multimedia experience for visitors to Rome. After seeing this show, I felt well prepared to view the Sistine chapel and art of Michaelangelo. Light show, stage show, ballet combined. Wonderful.

Fantastic show that integrates technology, acting and film to tell the story of Michelangelo’s master works in the Sistine Chapel.

Your service was great—you informed us of address, time, etc. we did get a program & aperitif too—as we signed up for. The film was expertly produced & the live interaction made it a great show. Especially happy to see this because we are unable to actually visit the Sistine Chapel as it is closed on Sundays now!

The overall experience was wonderful. It was creative, novel and breathtaking. I would recommend that "navigating" entrance be more user-friendly. For example: exchanging the bar code print out for tickets, getting refreshments from the bar, and getting the booklet.
