Impressive National Theatre of Rhodes to be restored


The long-neglected National Theatre of Rhodes will finally be restored in a joint project by the South Aegean Regional Authority and the municipality of Rhodes.

With a budget of 16.8 million euros, the restoration project aims to benefit the island of Rhodes by growing its cultural infrastructure. Upon its completion, the theatre will host music and opera performances in cooperation with the Greek National Opera in Athens.

Built in 1937 by Italian architect Armando Bernabiti, the national theatre was one of several impressive buildings left from the Italian occupation.

According to Rhodes Mayor Antonis Kampoutakis, the restoration project will provide a cultural center with the hope of boosting cooperation with art organisations and companies abroad.
