Teatro Real is the main opera house in Madrid, one of the most popular in Spain, as well as one of the symbols of the city. The Royal family often visits the performances, but tickets are affordable. The theater is located on East Square, directly opposite the Royal Palace. If you want to immerse yourself in the incredible atmosphere of the 18th century, you can book the Teatro Real Madrid tour.

History of the Theater

The Royal Opera House was built in 1850 by order of Queen Isabella II. She wanted the royal court to have its theater, so she issued a decree to accelerate the construction process, and the theater would be ready in precisely six months.

The architects Don Antonio López Aguado and Don Custodio Moreno did an excellent job with their task. In six months, they built a hexagonal building with a facade facing Eastern Square. The theater was built in the image and likeness of other famous European theaters: San Carlo in Naples and La Scala in Milan. In addition to the theater arena, the building provides dance halls, salons, a cafe-confectionery, an orchestra, and a cloakroom.

The theater's opening took place on October 10, 1850, on the birthday of Queen Isabella II. On this day, the first opera was staged on the theater stage - Donizetti's La Favorita.

The theater building has been rebuilt several times, so it has yet to have a single architectural style. The next (and at the moment the last) reconstruction took place in 1997, after which the theater again became an opera house and solemnly opened with the premiere of an opera by the contemporary composer Garcia Abril.

Tour of the Teatro Real Madrid

Are you ready to visit the place where Queen Isabella II enjoyed the pouring notes in the distant past? The Teatro Real Madrid tour will allow you to immerse yourself in this incredible atmosphere.

Immerse yourself in history

A guided tour Teatro Real in English or Spanish will take you on a journey through the history of the theatre. Our experienced guide will show you around the building, built in 1850, share interesting facts about the architecture and decor, and tell you how everything works inside such a grand structure.

Find out how everything works

The Teatro Real tour will let you explore from the inside the backstage where you will see how the preparations for each production go. You will also learn how the rehearsals are held, and the characters and costumes of the heroes are created. Among other things, you will learn about other theatrical production intricacies and see the actors' dressing rooms.

Opera House Today

Since 1997, the Royal Opera House has remained virtually unchanged. Its exterior and interior decoration combines several architectural styles at once. The hall accommodates 1854 spectators, of which 28 are VIP boxes and one two-tier royal box with natural gold decor elements.

Even though this theater is one of the main city attractions, getting here is relatively easy. You can buy tickets for not the most popular performances on the same day, and they will cost 9 EUR. Tickets for popular operas and good seats will cost more, but not prohibitively: from 100 EUR. The acoustics in the hall are excellent, so the sound does not depend on the place.

Book Your Journey Today

If you want to visit an unforgettable place that is steeped in the history of Spain, then you can book Teatro Real Madrid tour tickets. Our tours will allow you to:

  • get a lot of positive emotions and pleasure;
  • immerse yourself in historical details revealing the reasons for the creation of this place;
