Overview

When the Teatro da Trindade opened in 1867, it did so in grand fashion with decorations and furnishings in keeping with its unmistakably Italian-influenced façade. Back then, it was plain white, but today the magenta coloured plasterwork with contrasting white arched reveals, make this building a landmark between the Chiado and Bairro Alto neighbourhoods. The installation of a pioneering ventilation system put this theatre in a class of its own when it first opened.

The inside of “Trinity Theatre,” as its name reads in English, has a regal magnificence all of its own lending to the special ambience at show time. The seating capacity is 495. It is no wonder that this quickly became one of Lisbon’s elite theatres – witness the writings of novelist Eça de Queiroz.

Reputed to have been both an abbey, and then a brewery in early times simply adds to the charm and character of the building. Extensive renovations in the 1920s added a distinctive Art Deco theme to Teatro da Trindade.

If gripping live stage productions are your forte, then come here and spend an evening watching the play of your choice. It is bound to be entertaining within these hallowed walls, and will leave you with a lasting memory of your visit.
