Teatro Municipal de Santiago

The Teatro Municipal de Santiago opened its doors for the first time in September 1857 and has since been considered the most important stage theater and opera house in Chile. The building constructed in the style of neoclassical architecture was inaugurated with the Verdi opera 'Ernani' and has since suffered several strokes of fate, including multiple fires and an earthquake but was reconstructed every time. In 1974, the Teatro Municipal de Santiago was declared a National Monument.
