This marvellous theatre has only 99 seats shared between its boxes and stalls. It was finished in 1808, under the Napoleonic occupation, and was initiated by nine local families. In the second half of the 19th century it was decorated by Cesare Agretti and in 1892 by his son Luigi, only 14 at the time, who painted the ceiling and the vaults, the boxes and the meeting room. After its construction, Monte Castello di Vibio became a capital of a large territory and enjoyed a particularly vibrant period thanks to the ideals of brotherhood and equality introduced by the new French administration. The original building has been restored several times. The latest works, after a period of neglect during the 50’s and 60’s, were finished at the beginning of the 90’s. The interior of the theatre, considered “the smallest in the world”, is made entirely out of wood in the “Goldoniano” style and represents a rare example of its kind, offering a harmonious and well thought out use of space for scenery, for the actors and the audience. Plenty of shows take the place each year: prose, opera, classical and jazz concerts. The theatre is also available for meetings and civil weddings, and can be visited on Saturdays and Sundays, between 25th December and 6th January, and in July and August everyday

A real surprise

This place is a joy. Very unusual. The volunteer guide was both enthusiastic and informative. A "Not to be Missed" visit.

Unique theater in this quiet, sleepy village on the top of a mountain. Nice tour of the facility and informational video.

This is certainly worth seeking out and visiting, however you may want to check out opening hours, as it is only open at weekends and times do vary. Inside there is a small area to look at the theatres history over the years, before listening to recorded details (available in various languages) before going into the main area. Inside the...

As regular theatregoers we had to visit this place. The tour is in Italian but a CD commentary is put on in English during the visit. During the summer the theatre is open virtually daily as we went on a Tuesday. The little town is interesting with lovely views. A donation is recommended as no charge is made.

If you are driving through Umbria, perhaps on the wine or olive oil trails you might come across this small gem tucked in the center of a Monte Castello di Vibio.

Billed as the smallest theater in the world, it is truly lovely. It was built by local families to bring culture to a tiny charming town. The interior is lovingly restored and the acoustics are great. The town itself is worth a walking tour and the piazza with it's long range lovely views is the perfect place to drink a... More

Monte Castello is well worth visiting, with narrow, seemingly timeless, streets and wonderful views across the Tiber valley. Theatro della Concordia is the highlight of the town, and not to be missed. A perfectly shaped auditorium gives a wonderful sense of intimacy. Knowledgeable guides, all part of the volunteer group that run the theatre, are welcoming and friendly, and give... More

This extra small theater (99 seats) is wonderful and enchanting. Its a miniature version of "La Scala" and the little town - Monte Castello di Vibio - is a little gem in the Umbrian countryside. Not only it hosts classical music concerts and theater performances, but it is also a great venue for company small business events.

The small theatre in the beautiful town of Monte Castello was a find! Along a winding alley was the entrance to a restored building housing the theatre. It is looked after by the townspeople for their volunteer work. It is called the smallest theatre in the world, 99 seats and they do have regular shows during the summer. The inside... More
