I was very excited before visiting this place. Not that there are no other baroque theaters in the world, but on this visit I dreamed almost 11 years. All because this theater is one of the few that has preserved original machinery of the eighteenth...More

This is the words only still fully working rococo theaters in its original. But unfortunately they have cut down the performances to only a few weeks a year which is very sad and unfortunate, since it is a one in a lifetime experience. Go here...More

One of the few still working theatres from the 18th century. If you manage to get tickets to a show here, it is absolutely magical. Try to make sure they are actually using the old theatre, though. Lately, there has been a misguided concept of...More
