After the destruction of Teatro Civico di Castello during the second world war a new project for a new Opera House was brought to light in 1964. A project that over the years transformed into what we call today Teatro Lirico di Cagliari. A beautifully designed and prestigious Opera House that can host up to 1,650 spectators. The stage and the orchestra pit were built first, the rehearsal rooms, workrooms, store rooms and office premises were built over the years while the foyer, a new bookshop, the bar and an elegant restaurant were the latest addition and renovation project to be completed. The Teatro Lirico was finally inaugurated in 1993. With its own orchestra and chorus which play a leading role in many prestigious productions, the Opera House is open all year long with rich concert, opera and ballet seasons.
