The Teatro Lírico

Mallorca has a surprisingly high number of theatres. In Palma alone, there are the Teatro Principal, the Teatro Xesc Forteza, the Teatro Municipal, the Teatro del Mar, the Teatro Sanç and, of course, the Auditorium. In the Part Forana, we find theatres in Alcúdia, Andratx, Artà, Bunyola, Cala Millor, Calvià, Campos, Capdepera, Inca, Lloseta, Manacor, Pollença, Santa Eugènia, Santanyí, Son Servera and Vilafranca de Bonany.

One of the best liked theatres was one which, sadly, does not exist any more, the Teatro Lírico in Palma de Mallorca. The theatre was originally called Teatre Circ Balear and was erected in 1870 with a stage in a circular shape to also allow for circus performances. The building was pulled down and replaced in 1902 to be rebuilt, now without the circular stage, and renamed as Teatro Lírico. When it was closed down in 1967, the building was demolished to make space for the Jardins de s’Hort del Rei. A memorial stone was erected in its place (shown in my photo). 

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. The date: September 2nd, 2008. The time was 14:44:34. The postcard was probably in use during the Twenties. The Teatro Lírico is the building on the left.
