Teatro Nacional de São Carlos - Opera house in Lisbon, Portugal


The Teatro Nacional de São Carlos is an opera house in Lisbon, Portugal. It was opened on July 30, 1793 by Queen Maria I as a replacement for the Tejo Opera House, which was destroyed in the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. The theatre is located in the historical center of Lisbon, in the Chiado district.

In 1792, a group of Lisbon businessmen decided to finance the construction of a new Opera House in the city. The theatre was built in only six months following a design by Portuguese architect José da Costa e Silva, with neoclassical and rococo elements. The general project is clearly inspired by great Italian theatres like the San Carlo of Naples (interior) and La Scala in Milan (interior and façade). In the early 19th century, when the Portuguese Royal Court had to flee to Brazil to escape the invading Napoleonic troops, a theatre modelled on the São Carlos was built in Rio de Janeiro.


Interior of the Teatro.The main façade has a decorated clock, the Portuguese coats-of-arms and an arched entrance hall (a portico). The theatre was named after the Princess Charlotte of Spain, who had come to Portugal in 1790 to marry the future King, Prince John: Carlos (Portuguese form of Charles) is the masculine form of Charlotte. A Latin commemorative inscription dedicates the theatre to the princess.

The beautiful main room is elliptic, has five tiers of boxes and seats 1148 people. The luxurious royal box was lavishly decorated by the Italian Giovanni Appianni. The ceiling was painted by Manuel da Costa and the stage by Cirilo Wolkmar Machado.

The first opera presented here, in 1793, was La Ballerina Amante, by Domenico Cimarosa. The most famous Portuguese composer of the time, Marcos Portugal, became musical director of the São Carlos in 1800 after returning from Italy, and many of his operas were staged here.

Corral de Comedias de Almagro (1628)

Authomatic fun translation with Google of the Spanish Wikipedia: http://translate.google.es/translate...n&hl=&ie=UTF-8

This small theatre is the only of its kind (almost) completely preserved in all Europe. It was made in the XVII century, and belongs to a kind of theatres typical from Spain and England. In England there was the Globe theatre, for example, known as "elizabethan theatre", in Spain they were called "Corrales de Comedias". Of course there are modern reconstructions, but they are not original.

I have said "almost" complete, as now it's almost sure that originally its size was double, and reduced when the use of the theatre decreased (I mean: there is not enough money to investigate it, nor political interest )

The KiMo Theater
Albuquerque NM

image hosted on flickr

http://www.flickr.com/photos/joeyharrison/

The old KiMo Theater in downtown Albuquerque. One of the signature buildings of the city. Built in 1927 in a rare Pueblo Deco style. KiMo is a Tewa word (a local Pueblo Indian language) that means something like 'King of it's kind'. This community landmark, a once grand stopover for celebrities passing through the city by rail, has been in ongoing restoration for over 30 years.

This is the Royal Theater in Stockholm (Kungliga Dramatiska Teatern). One of the most beautiful buildings in my book.
