Go to the Theater

Cuban theaters are spaces that have a long artistic tradition. Constructive beauty and hosting events are some of the characteristics that distinguish them.  The rich cultural history of Cuba is evident in the various art demonstrations in the main theaters, mostly in Havana, as this is the city in which converge the best exponents of the culture. 

One of the nicest theaters in the capital is the Mella theatre. There, shows for all tastes and ages are presented. For over 60 years, the local is pleased to give the best of Cuban art to all who go to its activities.

The National Theater of Cuba is the flagship center of the Cuban stage. A few meters from the Revolution Square, it has a large collection of art. With a contemporary and monumental architecture that distinguishes it from the other theaters in the country, the National Theater of Cuba stands as one of the most important cultural centers of Havana, and one of the most popular in the country.

The Karl Marx Theater is one of the most important art venues in the country. Its large capacity and large tables are some of its characteristics. Considered the "Theatre of the Big Events of Cuba," Karl Marx is the quintessential space for holding events, political rallies, concerts and gala opening and closing of the most important events of various kinds that are performed each year in the country.

The America Theater is a cultural unique institution in Santiago de Cuba. Here, well known artists perform and festivals and conferences are summoned to be done. Considered the second capital of the country, Santiago de Cuba is one of the most important provinces of the island, since every year it welcomes important events of diverse nature, so much national as international.

The Church and Alameda de San Francisco de Paula are gems of the Havana colonial architecture. Today, they are one of the most visited places in the country. It is located at the end of the tree-lined avenue of the same name and at the intersection of Desamparados Street, San Ignacio and Paula, in Old Havana.

The Gran Teatro de la Habana is an exceptional artistic capital stage circuit. Therein lies the home of the National Ballet and the National Opera. Located in the central Paseo de Martí between San Jose and San Rafael, in the municipality of Habana Vieja in Havana, the center was opened on 15 April 1838 under the name Gran Teatro Tacón, in honor of the then Governor General of Island Miguel Tacón and Rosillo, who ordered its construction in 1834.

The National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba has its seat in the Amadeo Roldan Auditorium Theater. The excellent acoustics of the institution makes it unique in its category. There are few places in Havana where you can spend a quiet moment, enjoying pleasant instrumental music, in a place with the right conditions for the occasion.

The Variedades América Theater is one of the most reputable in Cuba. It has an Art-deco style, and in it entertainment shows for the most discerning tastes are organized. Among the big theaters that there are in Cuba, the America theater has over 70 years giving the public the best of Cuban and international art of all time.

"The Cuban government has paid the first installment and has done soon", said the French Ambassador to Cuba, Jean-Marie Bruno. Under the agreement with the Paris Club the 14 countries had a year to sign restructuring pacts that could include the establishment of local accounts, where a percentage of the money owed would be earmarked for development projects.

  • The Roswell Park Cancer Institute, based in the city of Buffalo, will hold in the United States a clinical trial of a Cuban vaccine against lung cancer. The goal is to test the CimaVax-EGF, a treatment developed by the Molecular Immunology Center in Havana. The institute, one of the most important of its kind in the world, becomes the first American medical institution to receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration to test a Cuban medical therapy in that country. The clinical trial is expected to begin in November and to involve roughly 60 - 90 US patients. Although CimaVax-EGF does not provide a cure of the disease, it contributes to slow the growth of tumors and is less toxic than chemotherapy. In this regard, it has already shown promising results in Cuba, and other countries like Peru, Colombia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
