After two decades of silence, the Roman Theatre in Malaga City will reopen for performances on September 15.

The last performance at the theatre, from the first century, was held in 1991, before restoration work began.

Now, it will get a new lease of life, with a “simple and symbolic” performance, which includes the presentation of baritone Carlos Alverez, guitarist Daniel Casares, and painter Andres Merida, who will create a work of art on stage.

The performance is free and will start at 7.30pm, but space is limited to 220 people, although many more will be able to watch from Calle Alcazabilla.

Malaga´s Councillor for Culture Damian Caneda, explained that it combines “a classical environment with the vibrent artistic movement the city is experiencing”.

“The theatre will be used for small things, including classical plays and concerts,” he explained, “all of which will be held in the summer.”

The city hall is waiting for authorisation from the Junta de Andalucia although they don´t expect any setbacks.
