This theater was named after the Literature Nobel Prize winner, Miguel Angel Asturias. Its construction started in 1951, and the building was finally completed in 1978. Nine years later it was declared part of the National Heritage. With an area of 88,927 square meters, the building is designed to look like a seated jaguar. It is the largest theater in Guatemala and regularly puts on popular music concerts, choral concerts, classical and modern ballets, as well as operas and zarzuelas (Spanish light operas). The facility includes a smaller theater for plays and conferences and a small open-air theater.
