Teatro Regio

Set under the classical arcades on the northeastern side, Turin’s new royal theatre presents a contemporary façade of glass and metal. The old theatre, built in 1740 and designed by Benedetto Alfieri, was destroyed by fire in 1936. The new one, built to designs by Carlo Mollino and Marcello Zavelani Rossi, was inaugurated in 1973 and plays host to a calendar of prestigious operas and concerts. The Teatro Regio also houses a precious archive of musical documentation and witnessed the premieres of Manon Lescaut in 1893 and La Bohème, both by Puccini, in 1896.
