The "Teatro Tomas Terry", Cienfuegos.
Magnificent building from the hall onwards. In the centre of the hall is a statue in white Carrera marble of Terry himself and a superb fresco on the ceiling. Stairs to the left take you up to the gallery where there are three tiers of balconies. The theatre holds some 950 people. Built in 1887/9 the theatre opened in 1895 with a version of Aida by Verdi. When we were there there were artists doing a run-through of a future play.
Entry is supposedly 2 CUC with a tour, but either they couldn't be bothered or thought we couldn't understand enough Spanish, so we only paid 1 CUC each.
Teatro Tomas Terry
The Teatro Tomas Terry is a lovely theater, built in 1889. Admission is 10 pesos (or ½ CUC) but people who can’t afford it can sit in the top tiers for free. There was nothing going on when we were there, but the theater was worth a look.

An italian looking theater
One of the most impressive buildings in Cienfuegos is the Teatro Tomas Terry on the north side of Parque Marti.
The theatre was built by Tomas Terry's family, as a tribute to the man, after his death.
A statue of Tomas Terry stands in the lobby. This Italian looking theatre was the creation of architect Lino Sanchez Marmol and was built in 1889.
Teatro Tomas Terry
Inaugurated in 1890, the theater has been wonderfully maintained. It has been declared a national monument, and stars such as Enrico Caruso, Sarah Bernhardt, and Ana Pavlova performed here. Check to see if there are any performances while you're in town; if not, you can tour the facility during the day. Admission is 1CUC and includes a quick, guided tour.
