Another elegant, historic venue for concerts, opera, and dance
Curtain up, light the lights!
Another excellent option for refined cultural palates is this majestic 1928 theatre, built by Spaniard José Raventós (and designed by José Fabio Garniel Ugalde) so Josefinos could enjoy opera and zarzuela (Spanish operetta). The current name honours Melico Salazar, a popular Costa Rican tenor. It has 1,500 seats and regularly stages music concerts as well as dance and opera performances (if you just want a look at the elegant interior, stop by on Sunday when there are no performances).
