  Teatro San Carlo - May 09
by MM212

Inaugurated in 1737 with a performance of Domenico Sarro's Achille in Sciro, Teatro San Carlo is the world's oldest surviving opera house. It was commissioned by King Carlo III di Borbone and designed by the architect, Giovanni Medrano, and for a while became the most prestigious opera house in Europe. The theatre was remodelled in 1816 by the architect Antonio Niccolini after a fire damaged its interior. Teatro San Carlo is located opposite Galleria Umberto I and next to Palazzo Reale.
