Gran Teatro de La Habana, García Lorca
This prominent theater is located on the site of the former Teatro Tacón in the Paseo de Martí (Prado), in a building known as the Palacio del Centro Gallego. The façade of the neo-baroque building (constructed in 1914) is adorned with a stone and marble statue. There are also sculptural pieces by Giuseppe Moretti, representing allegories depicting benevolence, education, music and theatre. The García Lorca auditorium provides a magnificent stage for the Cuban National Ballet Company, as well as other dance and musical performances.
exceptional venue for ballet and opera performances, old world horseshoe layout, meaning you must try to get tickets in the center or slight off-center sections of the auditorium, the sides, particularly second balcony and nosebleed, are livable if you are in the first row and able to crane your neck, you will miss something, but not much, do not bother with the second row unless it is a must that you gain access for a particular performance and willing to watch standing.
