About the Grand Theater

Grand Theatre – National Opera is the city’s main venue for opera and balet and one of the largest theatres in the world. It was designed by the Italian architect Antonio Corazzi and built between 1825 and 1833.

Its magnificent classical façade is one of the few remaining parts of the original theater to have survived World War II. Completed in 1965, the post-war restoration and modernisation made it one of the most spectacular and well-equipped theatres in Europe.
