Lyrical Theatre of Cagliari

Local nameTeatro Lirico
LocationCagliari, Italy

The Teatro Lirico di Cagliari is an opera house in Cagliari. It is the main theatre of the city.

The Teatro Lirico was built in order to provide a large theatre to the city. After the destruction of the Teatro Civico, damaged by the shelling of Cagliari operated by the Allies during World War II, and the destruction of the Politeama Regina Margherita due to a fire in 1942, after the war there was not a suitable theatre in Cagliari.

The project, by the Italian architects Luciano Galmozzi, Pierfrancesco Ginoulhiac e Teresa Ginoulhiac Arslan, won a bid for the contract in 1967. The opera house was inaugurated in 1993. It covers a surface of 5000 m² among the stage, the auditorium and the foyer. Various rooms, like laboratories, offices, bar, book shop and restaurant were added after the inauguration.
