  Funchal - Teatro Baltazar Dias
by salinhopt

Located on Avenida Arriaga, the Municipal Theatre Baltazar Dias has remarkable architectural balance despite the size of this building. It has large windows and a beautiful entrance with tiled floors and eleven arched doors.
The ceilings are painted with decorative elements typical of the romantic period, and the stalls are fringed by private boxes. Gilt and carved Grecian masks are the main decorative elements in these boxes. The main ceiling is an extraordinary work of composition, depicting the "puttis" flying amongst clouds.

Address: Avenida Arriaga - Funchal
