Municipal Theater

The Teatro Municipal was initially inaugurated in 1920 under the name of Teatro Forero. In 1929 the Municipality of Lima bought the theater and renamed it Teatro Municpal. For years, it was the pride of the local performing-arts scene and the primary spot for theater, ballet, opera, and symphony performances. In August 1998 a devastating fire destroyed big parts of the building. For 10 years plans for a rebuilt were on hold, but finally in 2008 the municipality announced the reconstruction of the famous theater. In October 2010 after a 2 year restoration following the original design the Teatro Municipal was re-inaugurated even more beautiful and with the newest technology implemented.
