Backed by the success of its previous edition, the dramatized visits to the Carlos III Royal Coliseum, the oldest covered theatre in Spain that still exists, and the only working court theatre, are back. The safety of the assistants and workers in front of the COVID-19 will be guaranteed, thanks to all the measures adopted as well as the reduction of the capacity. Don't miss it!
Within the intense programme offered throughout the year by the Real Coliseo Carlos III, with dance, theatre and music shows, there are included dramatized visits to show the history of this heritage jewel, located in this town World Heritage site of the Region of Madrid.
The visits, which take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 12pm, between August 11 and October 30, try to make known the ins and outs of this theatre built by the architect Jaime Marquet, and which was inaugurated in 1771. A stage that during the 18th century hosted theatrical shows organised for the Court and for such illustrious guests as Francisco de Goya or Manuel Godoy.
After years in which it hardly presented shows, the twentieth century returned to the theatre the splendour it deserved thanks in large part to the Nobel Prize for Literature Jacinto Benavente. We will have to wait until 2010 to be able to see a renovated theatre, with proposals for all audiences, which reach to the present day.
