“Beautiful and intimate theatre”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

I saw "Frankenstein, the Musical" here on August 3rd. Tickets were purchased at the big department store off of Plaza del Sol, and they were running a promotion that evening. Tickets were very cheap for the performance I saw.

The theatre was very kept in great condition with lots of red and gold. Seats were great, second row center of the first balcony (from the layout map, we thought we would be in the first row), house was not filled to capacity, but the performance was very intense, great lighting and performances, maximum use of minimal scenery. Everything worked together to make a powerful and magical evening of theatre.

We were surprised to find that Spanish theatres sold popcorn and drinks, even alcoholic ones, to take into the beautiful theatre. You can only do that in some movie theatres in America.

“Above-average venue with potentially good shows”
Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I saw a ballet flamenco show ("Carmen") at this theatre and it was a very good show for the value (€15/person, special value for Tuesdays and Wednesdays; other days are about 5 to 10 euros more, depending on your seat). We stayed nearby and were walking to dinner but saw the theatre and decided to be spontaneous and purchased 2 tickets for that night's show (1 hour later) and were able to get really good seats. The ticket staff was very friendly and helpful and spoke fine English.

The facility is slightly above average and can accommodate medium-quality productions. Check to see what the performances are and hopefully you can see a good show like we did!
