Theaters

Theater plays an important role in Dominican arts and culture. The DR is said to be the first destination in the Americas to offer drama entertainment, a direct result of the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century. The most prestigious theaters in the country include Eduardo Brito National Theater, with a capacity of 1,600–Palacio de Bellas Artes, and the Cibao Grand Theater. An annual theater festival is held in Santo Domingo—the heart of theater in the DR—but you can experience a play throughout the year at one of the many excellent facilities in the capital, and in Santiago, the second largest city in the DR.

Consult each theater’s calendar for current information on upcoming plays and performance dates.
