The theatre was built as a cinema in the 1950s as part of the expansion of the Vomero district back from Piazza Vanvitelli. In 2005 came its definitive transformation into a 900 seat lively theatre, a venue for musicals and musical comedy, drama, operettas and concerts.
About The Author
Penny Ewles-Bergeron is the English half of an Anglo-American couple who met through an advert in Private Eye. Their love affair with Italy began with a honeymoon in San Gimignano. For seven joyful years they enjoyed a wildly different part of the country, living in the very heart of Naples. Though they now reside in England, Penny's passion for the city continues to find daily expression on social media, as her numerous Twitter followers can attest. She was delighted when Barbara Zaragoza invited her to edit The Espresso Break and returns to her favourite subject as editor and contributor to the forthcoming Napoli Unplugged Guide to Naples. Some of her paintings may be seen at Saatchi Online.
