Unfortunately, lack of time prevented us from attending any performances at this theatre. However, just admiring the building from outside gave us a lot of pleasure. The classical columns of the façade and the superb figures in the tympanum are absolutely beautiful and it is a credit to the city that the building is so wonderfully maintained.

THe theatre is one of the earliest examples of a city funded theatre. Opera, plays and concerts are given here. It is a restored building but quite magnificent

A theater like many others built in neo classical style. It's nice to watch an opera here. It's located in the middle of the city center.
