Royal Theater: Behind the scenes

The Royal Theater was built on the plot where the former Caños del Peral Theater stood, which was demolished in 1817. Due to its location and concept, from the beginning it was linked to the Spanish Monarchy, which wanted to build a theater that rivaled the best in Europe in terms of quality and size. It was designed in line with reforms to Plaza de Oriente, which gave rise to its strange, irregular hexagonal shape and affected the building’s floor plan and functioning.
