Copacabana Palace Theatre to Re-Open

The famous theatre in Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana Palace Hotel is set to re-open in November 2021 after being totally refurbished.

The theatre first opened its curtains in 1949, but it has been closed for productions since 1994. The first production on re-opening is scheduled to be “Copacabana Palace – O Musical”.

The theatre now has 238 seats in the stalls and another 70 on the balcony, as well as a number of boxes.

Its return is a very, very welcome addition to Rio’s cultural scene.
