Teatro Politeama

The Teatro Politeama in the Baixa area of Lisbon dates from 1913. The theatre was designed by the Portuguese architect Miguel Ventura Terra (1866-1919) and financed by Luis Antonio Pereira, whose dream it was to create a theatre.

The Politeama's debut show was with the operetta "Valsa de Amor" (Waltz of Love) with Cremilda de Oliveira and Sofia Santos in the lead roles. Most of the giants of Portuguese theatre have performed at the Politeama in its over 100 years of history in revues, musicals and ballets.
