National Theatre

Historic theatre, high culture.

The impressive white building with Greek columns you'll find in the heart of the city, at the side of Francisco Morazán Plaza next to Calle Delgado, is the National Theatre, the capital's flagship of high culture. Inaugurated in 1917 on the ashes of its predecessor which burned down in a fire that ravaged much of the old town, it hosts theatre, dance, and concerts of diverse musical artists and genres, from homegrown folkloric to revered international headliners. If culture is even remotely of interest to you, you really should have a look at the listings here, because the price is right, and you could find yourself enjoying a tremendous experience in a handsome, historic setting.
