  • This is the premier place to see a play or a concert. It’s located in the heart of downtown at the corner of Hernandez Macias and Mesones. Built in 1873, the theater was opened by the reigning queen of opera in Mexico, Angela Peralta. Thanks to extensive improvements, the sound is excellent and there isn’t a bad seat in the house. On your way in, take note of the mural “Homage to the Arts” in the main lobby. The theater hosts ensembles during the Chamber Music Festival in August, jazz plays during the Cervantino Festival in October, and concerts during the International Jazz Festival in November, as well as weekly events by local and visiting artists.

    Fuera de los improvisados teatros y carpas que había en la Villa para las comedias y coloquios que en las fiestas se representan por cómicos de la legua, no hubo, son hasta fines del siglo XIX, un teatro en forma, como lo demandaba la ya importante ciudad de San Miguel. Es en el mes de abril de 1871 cuando se inicia la construcción del Teatro bajo la iniciativa del Administrador Principal de Rentas Don Juan Mañón, con la ayuda de la Tesorería Municipal, y una junta de accionistas de los principales vecinos de la ciudad.
