Musical Theater

Teatro de la Zarzuela first opened in 1856 on the birthday of Queen Isabella II. Zarzuela is the Spanish genre for traditional musical theater, which combines spoken scenes with scenes involving singing and dancing, and to this day it remains true to its raison-d'être. Like many public buildings from that time period, the theater has been renovated and rebuilt multiple times, and also served for a number of years as the venue for most of Madrid's opera performances while during the closure of the Teatro Real (reopened in 1997). Check the website for ticket prices and a calendar of upcoming performances.
