- Built in 1856 in the same style as La Scala in Milan, this grand theatre is dedicated to a particularly Spanish form of 17th-century light opera called zarzuela that includes spoken as well as sung parts. It's also used for performances of classical opera, dance and concerts. At Christmas time the Spanish National Ballet Company present their new work here to expectant audiences. The traditional semicircular seating area has three galleries with private boxes and holds up to 1259 spectators.
