Owner description: This gorgeous and majestic National Theater was built in the early 20th century, and still retains its elegant charm. Today, its stage hosts classical music, theater and dance performances—and they’re incredibly affordable. If you can’t make one of the performances, at least make time to check out the beautifully restored and preserved space.

If you are staying in Casco Viejo try and see something at the Teatro. If not be warned that parking and traffic will be a nightmare before and after shows.

We were walking around in the Casco Viejo and happened by this theatre.....was initially attracted by an open door with cold air blowing out to the street.....it was HOT outside. We walked into the building and saw that we were in the Teatro National. This very small, intimate theatre has been completely redone within the past two years or so.....it is beautiful done.....rather reminds one, size wize of the Ford Theatre in Washington DC.....a lovely stage which was set for a symphony presentation or rehearsal.....four of five levels of boxes along the sides and a fairly small auditorium.....I'm betting the acoustics are perfect. I'd love to see a performance inside. It's worth a look see if you're in the neighborhood. Really really nice job.

I saw our diva, Peggy, sing here one night. Great venue in a colonial spot with centuries of history.
