The city's most prestigious theatre, famous for being the venue for Spain's Prince of Asturias prizes.
A Belle-Époque theatre that's Oviedo's cultural symbol.
Oviedo's most prestigious theatre, on downtown's Calle Pelayo, has undergone many technical changes since opening its doors in 1892 (the last great renovation being in 1986, inaugurated by performances from Plácido Domingo and Josefina Arregui). But the Teatro Campoamor has retained its Belle-Époque essence, with its grand orchestra section, wide aisles, and high illuminated ceilings which impart a warm feeling to the hall. In addition to its cultural programming, it houses the city's Centre of Modern Art. And last but certainly not least, some of the most illustrious and accomplished personages in Spain, Europe, and well beyond have come to this theatre annually since 1981 to accept their award of the Prince of Asturias Prize, Spain's equivalent of the Nobels.
