Teatro Principle Camagüey
Located in the center of Camagüey, on Padre Valencia. The Teatro Principal was originally opened in 1850.
In 1926, it was rebuild after major fire. That is why there are two dates on the facade. It was also used as a movie house. Now is is the home of the classic Camagüey Ballet,(1967) one of the two Cuban leading dance companies. Ballet Folklorico and Symphonic Orchestra also perform here. It is a venue for jazz, rock and even Enrico Caruso have sung there.
I believe, there are tours offered during the day. The day, I visited, the gates were locked, but you could see the elegant marble staircase leading upstairs. The performances are advertised on a notice board up front.
Not sure who is the sculptor of the female statue up front.
