'Teatro Principle' 1850/ 1926, Camagüey. City of Arches.

Teatro Principle.

Located in the centre of Camaguey, on Padre Valencia. The Teatro Principal was originally opened in 1850. In 1926, it was rebuild after fire. That is why there are two dates on the facade. It was also used as a movie house. Now, it is the home of the classic Camagüey Ballet (1967), one of the Cuban leading dance companies. Even in our hotel we had classically trained dancers!

Ballet Folclórico and Symphonic Orchestra also perform here. Even Enrico Caruso have sung there.

I believe, there are tours offered during the day. The day, I visited, the gates were locked, but you could see the elegant marble staircase leading upstairs. The performances are advertised on a notice board up front.

Not sure, who is the sculptor of the female statue up front, but the guy climbing the stairs is a tourist from Austria.
