Go Have a Look Around Inside

Interesting auditorium, well worth a look round. Sadly no production was on when we were there. It has an interesting history as well. The staff are very obliging and helpful.

Located at the Plaza Jose Marti, Teatro Terry is full of Theater history. For 2 CUC you can explore it by yourself and take pictures.

I happen to walk past the theatre one afternoon during my visit to Cienfuegos in April 2014 and noticed that Omara Portuondo from the Bueno Vista Social Club was performing the next evening. I bought a ticket for very little money (can't remember how much but it certainly didn't break the bank). The next evening, I was shown to my... More

It was really an unexpected surprise to see such theater in a provincial city of Cuba, in which Enrico Caruso and Sarah Bernard have performed. Yet it needs substantial restoration. You would advice you to go inside as well.

1800's theatre kept in much of its original state. Well maintained and GORGEOUS. Pay the minimal fee to walk in, it's worth it.

Built in 1886-9 and attracted world class perfomers such as Enrico Caruso and Sarah Bernhardt. Designed by Lino Sanchez Marmol to the traditional horseshoe plan within the rectangular building, the auditorium ceiling is covered in an immense fresco by Camilo Salaya. The classical exterior façade is well-maintained, as with all the buildings on the Parque Marti. The interior is in... More

They charge a fee of 5 pesos if you want to take a photograph. It is small and a bit tired. Our guide did not know much so we learned little about it.

This place has old world charm and was built at a time that craftsmanship was valued. When entering the lobby, make sure you look up at the ceiling.

Our group visited this theater for a concert by Cuba's Cantores de Cienfuegos & USA's Morgan State University Choir. This was a wonderful performance by the Cuban group and it was a pleasure to sit in the old theater and imagine the artists who have performed there. The locals were very appreciative of the concert. Even if there is no... More

This is simply a really lovely theatre that goes back to the late 1800s. Do take a close look at the outside either before or after going inside. There is a small charge to enter but it's worth it. The inside is lovely too and if you are really lucky there might be a performance while you are in Cienfuegos.... More
