SANTA ANA THEATRE
This architectural jewel of the “Ciudad Morena” (Brunette City) has established itself as the main art center of this beautiful city.
History says that in 1890 a contest was promoted to design a theater for Santa Ana. Engineer Domingo Call won the contest.
Construction work started in 1902 by initiative of the Board of Public Works of Santa Ana, who looked after the prosperity and beautification of the city.The architects involved were Francisco Durini and Christopher Molinari who relied on the art of Italian Arcangelli Luis, Aaron and Antonio Guglieano Rovescalli, among others.
In 1910 construction was completed and inaugurated in February, thanks to the wealth produced by coffee exports in those years.
The architecture of the theater is referred as proscenium, which is characterized by having an arc that separates the stage and audience. The theater is also eclectic since it combines Romanesque, Renaissance and Greco-Roman styles.
At the dome you may appreciate beautiful paintings and portraits of artists such as Rossini, Gounod, Wagner, Bellini, Verdi and Beethoven creation of the Italian artist Arcangelli.
The areas that make up the theater are: the Lobby, the Foyer, the Grand Hall, Stage, the boxes and the Spanish Terrace.
Throughout its rooms you will see the architectural details carved in mahogany wood, ornaments made of plaster, paintings and outstanding rsculptures brought from Pisa, Italy.
This luxurious building was equipped with furniture, marble, mirrors and lamps brought from England, Belgium and Italy.
