The San Carlos National Theatre was inaugurated on 30 June 1793, and to this day is the only national theatre designed for the production and presentation of operas, choral and orchestral music.
Its history is filled with historical facts, social episodes and pertinent cultural events which contribute to its unique heritage. This 18th century neo-classical building of Italian inspiration was declared a national monument in 1928.
