Overview

Commissioned by King Charles of Bourbon, Europe's oldest working theater was built in 1737. It wasn't long before its magnificent architecture and exquisite blue, gold and silver décors, complimented by a program with wider public appeal, was attracting praises from both home and abroad. Completely destroyed by a fire in 1816, Ferdinand I of Bourbon ordered the theatre to be rebuilt just six days later. The results were an improved quality of the acoustic and an extended stage. The opera season begins in January in Naples.
