Tapia Theater

The Municipal Theater of San Juan, better known by the sanjuaneros as Teatro Tapia, was built in 1832 and named after the famous Puerto Rican playwright Alejandro Tapia y Rivera.  It was designed in the Italian style, as a horseshoe shaped opera house, with three tiers of boxes and has been remodeled twice in 1949 and 1987.

The beautiful neoclassical building is one the oldest free-standing drama stages in the New World and hosts a wide variety of events from ballets, plays, & operettas to modern day theatrical and musical events.
