Seville City - Theatres

Seville theatres

Seville has a long history of theatrical performances: its most beautiful and historic theatre, Lope de Vega, is named after the famous 17th century playwright. But there are also both larger, more modern theatres; and plenty of smaller, intimate venues, perfect for alternative productions, as well as flamenco performances - this is Seville, after all.

The theatre boasts the latest sound system with hundreds of speakers, and a cutting-edge acoustic shell (to enhance the sound, in both volume and quality, for the audience).
