This is the first and only theatre devoted to Spanish light opera. In 1994 it was declared a National Monument and in 2006 it celebrated 150 years’ service to the arts.

After the original hall was opened in 1856 (on the birthday of Queen Isabella II, with works by Asenjo Barbieri, Gaztambide and Hernando), this space underwent many transformations, until in 1998 it reverted to its original purpose: a theatre devoted to Spanish light opera.
It is currently the leading representative of the country’s musical legacy. Each season, it offers a complete programme of Spanish light opera, recitals (including the Lied Season and the Young Pianists Season), dance (by highly renowned companies like the National Dance Company) and lectures.

Its Orchestra has performed with major soloists and conductors and its Choir has sung in performances at the La Zarzuela Theatre and on international tours.
