Teatro Real of Madrid!!

Of course coming to Madrid we have to seek the old stumping grounds of me and my mother, and the Royal theater is one of them. This is the Teatro Real near the Royal Palace at the Plaza de Oriente on the front and the Plaza de Isabel II (with the queen statue) on the back.

I have written before on it so for stay brief, here is that post of mine. My previous post on the Teatro Real of Madrid

I take this post for an update and new photos of 2019.

The Teatro Real or Royal Theater is one of the most important opera houses in Spain. It is located opposite the Royal Palace of Madrid The Royal Theater is inaugurated on November 19, 1850 with the representation of La Favorita of Donizetti. Reopened in 1966 as a venue for concerts and musical events, it hosts the Eurovision Song Contest 1969.


Renovation work undertaken in the mid-1990s allowed it to return to it’s vocation as an opera house. Since 1997, the Royal Theater has regained its former glory and reputation for excellence in the 19C. The orchestra in the pit is the Symphony Orchestra of Madrid.


The Royal Theater can be visited every day. It is served by the Opera metro station of lines 2 and 5 .

For reference, the official site of the theater here: Official Teatro Real in English

And there you credit is given to a wonderful monument of my beloved Madrid, the Teatro Real is a must at least once.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
