Naples - Teatro di San Carlo

Teatro di San Carlo
The Teatro di San Carlo was designed by the architects Giovanni Antonio Medrano and Angelo Carasale after the monarch, Charles, wanted a new and larger theatre for Naples to replace the old and dilapidated Teatro San Bartolomeo of 1621.

On 12 February 1816 the San Carlo was destroyed by fire. The Theatre was re-designed by the architect Antonio Niccolini and rebuilt within ten months on order of King Ferdinand IV. In 1845 there was additional refurbishment and, by 1854, the theatre's interior appearance changed to the now-traditional red and gold. Now carefully restored to its former splendour, the San Carlo is the oldest working theatre in Europe. ...Show All
