Teatro San Carlo

Next to the Royal Palace you can admire the façade of the Teatro San Carlo, the second Theatre in Italy after La Scala in Milan. The oldest theater operating in Europe, was built during the reign of Charles of Bourbon, in 1816 and rebuilt in neoclassical style.

The splendid interior with its six floors of galleries, the royal box and the ceiling which is represented on a fresco of Apollo and the Muses. In recent years there has developed an intense activity aimed at recovering the eighteenth-century Neapolitan school of opera buffa, with the collaboration of Maestro Roberto De Simone.
