This charming building, which stands at the centre of the Forum of the Arts, combines the future with history.

Its structure is modern and versatile, while its shape is inspired by the standards of the Renaissance style.

Both the exteriors and the set design comply with the classic canons. At the entrance, the pronaos in a curved shape is supported by Ionic columns and it leads into a foyer that is also supported by pillars, where visitors are welcomed by the pictures of the artists that have performed here. The inside of the theatre is charming and simple at the same time, in light soft colours and displaying the austere line of the noble oak trusses.
