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

worth going to look around this little gem of a theatre, we were fortunate to be staying when there was a free concert one evening. The programme is not extensive so many evenings there is nothing to see but I would still take the our

Very small theatre - with lovely atmosphere. I would love to go there when there is a show - but unfortunately there was none when we were there. It is small and it won't take long to see it (as it is the smallest Italian style theatre in the world) but it is worth a detour to go and see... More

This old theatre has only 99 seats and they are arranged in tiered boxes a bit like La Scala. It is still used intermittently for productions of various types, when we were there they had a classical music performance for one night only.

Just charming and a very informative tour which includes the history of the theatre and the villagers input to keep it running.

If you are in the area visit the theatre. You may have to round the corner to the information centre to find the guide but you will be made very welcome. It is truly astounding inside with trompe l'oeil artwork making whole walls appear to be hung with drapes and tapestries.

This is a very interesting attraction. The staff are welcoming and gave us enough time to gently explore this small theatre, which is done out in a very appropriate and plush way. There is an English commentary which was useful. Worth the 5 euro entrance donation.

We were lucky enough to catch a performance by a guitar trio here. Suspect most, if not all, audience were fellow hotel guests - all seemed to enjoy experience as much as we did. Suggest anyone seeing a performance brings a fan as the interior of the theatre does get hot & somewhat airless.

If you in this are you must visit this theatre. It only holds 99 people, but it is so beautiful you have to see it. Such an interesting history.
