It was our delight to find a reading of Dario's poetry one evening at the National Theatre Building which bears his name. The exterior of the building is not overly exciting but the decoration on the inside are worth the price of admission alone. The theatre changes it's performances often and it is noted for the variety of production. Unfortunately, the Teatro is closed if there is no perfomance though if there is something on, make a beeline for it! The theater is divided into 2 areas. One with a large stage and high capacity seating for larger shows and the Crystal Room with 2 magnificent crystal chandeliers for smaller shows and art exhibits.

I have been to an exhibition and a performance at this theatre. Let me start off by saying that it is a beautiful building full of history. The theatre changes it's performances often and has a variety from Opera to productions for children and concerts and everything in between. The theater is divided generally into 2 areas. One with a large stage and high capacity seating for larger shows and the Crystal Room with 2 magnificent crystal chandeliers for smaller shows and art exhibits.

We saw a local performance of Aladdin "Aladino" and it was well put together. It did include numbers by young dance school students who were not professional, but it did not take away from the professionalism of the play and was actually rather cute. Te event was a gala. We paid $15 for balcony seats. My only regret is that we got seats on the side which seemed like a good idea since it put us closer to the stage. However, the seats are forward facing and you had to have your head turned and half hanging over the rail to see half of the stage. Even so, I was not dissapointed with the money we spent for the quality of production.. especially in Nicaragua where things tend to be a little more "relaxed".

Definitely one of the most impressive theaters I have seen in Latin America. The national dance and music show we witnessed was world class and had people cheering for more. The decor of the theater reminds me of some of the more impressive venues in Europe and Russia. Highly recommended for those interested in top class cultural shows.

The theater is NOT open for visitors unless there is an event. Its the second best rated Latin American theater after Teatro Colon of Buenos Aires. Its a must visit, and do go see a show. The theater hosts about 10 events per month, so check out whats playing.
