Apollo Theatre

Reserve a seat for an evening of culture at a small provincial theater that is more than 130 years old.

Apollo Theatre, known locally as Teatro Apolo, is a late 19th-century theater in the center of Almeria. It is named after the mythical Greek god who among other things was the god of music and poetry. Come for a concert, play or musical in one of the oldest theatrical spaces in the city.

Before entering the building spend a few moments studying the main façade. Among its features are Masonic symbols and classical elements such as columns and liras, the musical instrument associated with Apollo. This is the only part of the original structure to survive to the present day. Construction of the building is thought to have started around the late 1870s and early 1880s but the exact date is unknown. However, historians record that there were already performances in 1882.

Continue your appreciation of the performance venue’s design elements when inside. Study the interior decor which features walls and ceilings decorated with gold moldings in relief. Directly above the stage on the proscenium is the coat of arms of Almeria.

Elsewhere in the horseshoe-shaped auditorium, there are minimalist motifs and geometric shapes adorning the stalls and balconies. The look is due to later reconstruction efforts designed to recreate the ambience and appeal of the theater’s late 19th-century beginnings.

Relax in your comfortably upholstered chair while you are entertained by the actors, musicians or comedians on stage. Apollo Theatre doesn't have its own website, so to find out what's on when you will be in the area consult the local tourist information offices or the web pages of the city hall’s cultural department.

Reach Apollo Theatre by cab or local buses. Alternatively, drive and park for a fee in the spaces in nearby streets. The ticket office is open every day except Sundays and performance prices vary. Tickets can also be purchased online via the cultural department’s web pages.
