During our recent trip to Macau, we read in the What's On publication that the Dom Pedro V Theatre was being opened up to the public. We excitedly made our way to this attraction on St. Augustine Square and found that it is indeed now open to the general public for (free) entry between 10.00am to 6.00pm.
It was very nice finally entering the Dom Pedro V Theatre house and seeing the inside of this World Heritage attraction. Inside, there is an open waiting room with three chandeliers, wall mirrors and an entrance into the main theatre. You can look into the small theatre seating area but no entry is allowed. You can also walk up a single staircase and take a look inside from the balcony level of the theatre. Photography is allowed throughout the attraction.
While it was very nice finally being able to enter the Dom Pedro V Theatre, the star of this attraction remains the outside façade, which dates back to the 1870s. The façade is neo-classical style and beautifully decorated in a pastel green color that lights up well during the day and is is sublimely beautiful at night as well for those able to visit after after sunlight hours.
Overall, we much enjoy this particular attraction, finding it a unique inclusion in the World Heritage collection. While not much to actually see inside the theatre, the atmosphere is still very nice and its just fun entering and having a look inside the first Western style theatre house built in all of China.
