Fodor's Expert Review Gran Teatro de la Habana

Havana Theater

Also known as the Teatro García Lorca, the theater has a spectacular Baroque facade with white marble angels dancing gracefully on its four corner towers. It's a beautiful place to see operas, jazz shows, symphony performances, and plays. In addition, the National Ballet performs here under the direction of Alicia Alonso, who is now in her nineties but is still Cuba's honorary prima ballerina. There are two theaters here: the Sala García Lorca and the Sala Antonin Artaud, which is known for its avant-garde theater productions. At the time of writing it was closed due to ongoing renovations.
