The most unusual theatre you could ever see

A great place to visit and easily accessible in the city centre near the Stendahl hotel. There is so much space and plenty to see to satisfy a variety of tastes.

Ravaged by war, the theater was nearly destroyed and rebuilt in the late 50's. Napoleon's second wife was the Duchess of Parma and influenced... More

Quite a awe inspiring place. Did not expect the size of a theater. Good place to spend half an hour. In the middle of the city

In the theatre there is just one place to stand and view, you can't wander around. It is an amazing space, oval shaped and made of wood with a proscenium stage at one end. It's a great... More

The theater is amazingly beautiful, I wish we could experience a performance there! All wood, very well reconstructed, after that it was almost completely destroyed in 1944...

The theater is really a unique wood construction but the access was limited due to an upcoming concert and it was only narrow view angle was possible for visitors.
