If all you want to do is look around, the theatre is open for tours and there’s a café in the former ballroom .

    This beautiful theatre dates from 1856 and was built especially to stage zarzuela, a form of light opera unique to Spain and especially popular in Madrid. After decades of neglect zarzuela is now being revived and the theatre commissions new works from time to time as well as performing classic farces such as The Barber of Lavapiés and The Pharoah’s Court. The season runs from September to June. During the summer, the theatre is used for Flamenco, ballet and other cultural events.
