TEATRO REGIO TORINO

Originally, the theatre was a meeting place, a social occasion, a noble, covered square. For many years, the Teatro del Re (royal theatre), designed by Benedetto Alfieri starting in 1738, not only housed operas and concerts but also parties, card games, carousels and tournaments. The public came to meet and talk, and to win or lose huge sums of money. And before 1898, when Toscanini imposed the rule of the darkened hall, everything took place by the light of precious crystal chandeliers. After destruction by fire in 1936 and reconstruction by Carlo Mollino in 1973, the theatre still today continues its traditional vocation. The splendid hall in the form of a red-purple shell is not only the stage for memorable operas but also for cultural events and conventions. In the Teatro Regio every discussion sparkles brilliantly in the light reflected by the cascade of 2000 bulbs suspended from the wooden ceiling.
