This is a once beautiful theatre that used to be frequented by high society and music lovers as a cross section of Venezuelan Society. Since Hugo Chavez took it over to hold his "meetings", I don't know anyone that dares go close to the place. It is in front of the old Hilton Hotel which is now a Chavista "ALBA"... More

Got 10 BsF tickets to see contemporary dance as part of the International Festival of Theatre. Although we didn't get to go into the main hall, the basement was set up for a surreal hour of lights, colours, music and stamina.
