Theatre Royal

Theater Marrakech, Morocco

One of the major artistic and cultural focal points of the world Theatre Royal

The Theatre Royal is home to numerous cultural events, the building is an architectural wonder, with its dome and columns. Inaugurated on 19th of September 2001 by His Majesty King Mohammed VI, the Théâtre Royal de Marrakech has worked to secure the red city’s reputation as one of the major artistic and cultural focal points of the world.

Inside its impressive 1200-seat open-air theatre and 800-seat opera house, the theatre hosts a variety of national and international cultural events including opera, ballet and musical performances. Although the majority of these performances are in Arabic or French, even if you are not gifted with the ability to speak either language the Royal Theatre still has a lot to offer. The entrance hall often houses a variety of painting, sculpture and photography exhibitions. Indeed, the impressive architecture alone is worth the visit. Built by Tunisian architect Charles Boccara, the Royal Theatre combines the traditional aesthetic design of Arabic architecture with traces of modern influence. The imposing dome and grand marble pillars provide an immediate sense of awe which is matched by the interior entrance hall and auditorium. This is a truly outstanding monument; it is easy to see how this building has become the pride and joy of the Marrakchis.
