Caruso sang here as well but though a nice well oreserved theatre it lacks the decorative perfection of its equivalent in Cienfeugos

At night time you can seat in the marquesina and enjoy the night life in town while drinking a nice mijito.

Not the main reason for visiting Santa Clara but once you are here, you should look at the Teatro. Cuba has so many amazing theatres of this style - great to see them being used rather than just museums and monuments to a past era.

Fabulous well maintained theatre with a rake on the stage like I've never seen. The great Caruso himself played here. It's a quick visit so go have a look if you're in Santa Clara.

This review concerns the bar attached to the theatre, not the theatre itself, called La Marquesa. The bar itself is not much to write home about - in true Santa Clara style we were met with 'no agua', 'no ceverza', 'si mojito' - but the mojitos are extremely cheap and strong! The reason to go here is however to watch... More

Using only the finest materials of the day, the theater remarkably is holding up and is in use today. The spartan, metal seats in the center contrast with the upholstered chairs in the side boxes Even Enrico Caruso made his way to... More

We enjoyed the tour and the guide we had had pretty good english, which was a nice change. The artwork and stage is very interesting. The flys are still manual and the stage is interesting to walk on. A beauty of an old theater they just don't make anymore. Worth a visit.

An incredible piece of heritage, built on the colonial times, the fresco paintings inside, vintage chairs, pillar, is all very nice, the bad thing about visiting the Caridad Theater is that is practically closed all the time. You have to be quite lucky to pass by and see it open during day time. On the other hand in the near... More

It has quality concerts, theater and dance at affordable prices. The theater is old and has been restored.
