Gran Teatro - La Habana, Cuba
Havana´s Gran Teatro is located at the Paseo del Prado and is the home to the Cuban National Ballet. This world renowned institution can look back on a long and successful history. The original Grand Theatre of Havana was inaugurated in 1838. The theatre, then the oldest active theatrical institution in Latin America, operated initially under the name of Grand Theatre of Tacón. After several reformations, both in its facade as well as in its interior, the building was remodelled to find the way to its current form. In 1915 the theatre reopened its doors in the current building, in an opera season offered by important representatives of the lyrical art of the time. At present, it constitutes one of the most magnificent architectural exponents in the Cuban capital. Since its foundation, the most noted foreign figures and ballet companies, opera and drama have performed in the scenarios of this theatre.
