Teatro Nacional de São Carlos

Opened on 30 June 1793, the Teatro Nacional de São Carlos was classified as a National Monument in 1996. Considered one of the best-known theatres in Lisbon, it is also home to the Choir of the Teatro Nacional de São Carlos (created in 1943) and the Portuguese Symphonic Orchestra (founded in 1993).

The theatre presents its musical programme in three spaces: the Main Hall, which is the stage for lyrical productions, symphonic, choral-symphonic and ballet concerts. The Main Hall hosts recitals and concerts by different instrumental groups, opera readings and more intimate performances. And finally, the Foyer – the entrance to the theatre – is the privileged location for chamber concerts and short recitals, which are free of charge.

In addition to the shows, there are guided tours of the theatre building and other recreational and educational activities for children and young people, families and teachers, and the general public, intending to bring the theatre and the community closer together.
