“Check each Monday or Tuesday to see what's playing that week.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Performances here are world class and one should certainly check early each week to see what will be on stage during the week. Perhaps one of the four best dance companies around perhaps something else but for 10 CUCs you will find it very hard to find better value or finer performers.

“Amazing external architecture”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The external architecture of the theatre is not matched with the interior. All of the interior has been lost over time and is currently being restored. There is some impression of how the interior looked in its hey day, but at the present the area is a bit sparse being part way through its restoration.

“What a Grand Old Building!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

It is hard to imagine finding a wonderful old building like this amid the decay of central Havana. It is currently closed for renovations, so there are no performances to be had. However, try to figure out a way to get in for a little tour (perhaps a well placed tip?) because it's worth a look even with a show!!!

“A national treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

This is a beautiful old Baroque building that you should not miss. It has been restored just recently. It is near the Prado

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Beautiful building inside and out.

My first experience of ballet and what a way to start. We saw the last but one night of the Nutcracker and have to say my expectations were exceeded in every way. This really is a first class company putting on an international standard production.

One word of warning, during 2013 they will be doing some major renovations and we were told that the building will be closed for most of the year. Check with your tour operator if you were hoping to take in a show.
