Ignacio A. Pané Municipal Theatre (Teatro Municipal Ignacio A. Pané)

A worthwile cultural activity

The Ignacio A. Pané Municipal Theatre is another example of a cultural monument in Asunción with a history of adventures and misadventures from its beginning until today, when can visit it and enjoy its meticulous programming. The emblematic building was originally constructed in 1889 on the ruins of what was the former seat of Congress and later the National Theatre. Inaugurated in 1855, it survived wars and time's wear and tear on its beams and wooden walls. It was the jewel in the cultural crown from 1894, when it was extended with gardens and boxes, but just 100 years later it had to be shut down because of the deterioration of the building. The new look and multimedia of today's Municipal Theatre are the result of the restoration that was completed in 2006, recovering its architecture and reverting it back to its former status of landmark and headquarters of dance, classical music, opera and theatre performances. If you are interested in the theatre world, this is its temple in Asunción.
