Music, dance, paintings… and all in one multidisciplinary theatre!
Art in Rabat
“Artistic creation is the best way to stop time so that humanity may conserve its essence – culture – and even more so in times of uncertainty”. With these words Mohammed Benhsain, director of the Mohammed V National Theatre of Rabat, defines the philosophy of his institution, one which is undoubtedly fulfilled: the very best in opera, dance, drama, ballet and concerts of all kinds step onto the stage of this theatre, which has become the cultural centre and artistic oasis of the city. Due to its close proximity and historical ties, the theatre maintains an excellent relationship with Spanish artists, often staging performances as part of events such as the “Festival of the Two Shores”. Why not check the programme during your stay in Rabat to see if any of the shows captures your attention? What’s more, in a bid to become a multidisciplinary centre, the venue has also provided the setting for numerous photography and painting exhibitions.
