The Theater was built in 1845, when a group of traders of the city and a few rich families decided to construct a theater. In their opinion, there was lack for a theater worthy of the city. The Town Hall ceded the plot and the “Teatro Nuevo” (New Theater) was built in neoclassical style. It was inaugurated in 1847. A few years later it was called “Teatro de Alicante”, and finally, Teatro Principal, as it is named now.
Every year many companies of theater, ballet, opera and orchestras perform their plays in the Teatro Principal. As they don’t stay many days, it is really difficult to find tickets, unless you try the very day they are put on sale.
I’ve seen here Un ballo in maschera, Don Quijote ballet, Carmen (Bizet), El Mikado (Dagoll Dagom), The Merchant of Venice, etc.
Address: Calle del Teatro & Avda. Constitución
