  • From traditional productions to experimental works and classic opera to irreverent musicals, Madrid has a serious dramatic side to explore. Offering up something for every type of theater goer nearly every night of the week, the Spanish capital's theater scene is definitely a robust one. Most works are in Spanish; however, visiting international groups and local troupes do occasionally stage works in English or other languages.

    Modeled on Milan's famous opera house La Scala, Madrid's beautiful 1856 theatre the Teatro Lírico Nacional de la Zarzuela is primarily dedicated to works of zarzuela. For a specifically Spanish theatre experience, this Spanish form of light opera is not to be missed. Especially in such an attractive theatre.

    With a beautiful 19th century stone façade on Plaza Santa Ana, the Teatro Español (Spanish Theatre) has been located there – in one form or another – since the 16th century. Nowadays the theatre stages important classical and contemporary productions.

    As its name suggests, the Teatro Circo Price is more than a theatre. This important 2,000 seat cultural space hosts circus performances and plays as well as concerts and other performing arts events. An intimate alternative theatre, Cuarta Pared stages contemporary plays and performances, including dance, comedy, and children's programming.

    Located in the neighborhood of the same name (La Latina), Teatro La Latina is a local favorite when it comes to catching an entertaining comedy or an interesting drama. Of course, going out for post-show drinks and tapas in the area makes for an entirely satisfying evening.
