Theater in ruins

Picture of my country

Gran Teatro Cervantes, Tanger

Gran_teatro_Cervantes

My photo has a historical value. This monument – now- forgotten was the largest theater in North Africa during the first half of the 20th century.

The great Cervantes Theatre (Gran Teatro Cervantes) in the city of Tangier (north of Morocco) was built between 1911 and 1913 by Esperanza Orellana, her husband Manuel Peña and the owner Antonio Gallego.

The ruined theater had 1400 seats to accommodate the population of Tangier Moroccan and all nationalities worldwide (especially Spanish, English, French, Americans, Germans, …) because the city was under international administration.

The ruined theater, received the great works of Antonio Machin, Manolo Caracol, Lola Flores, Pepe Marchena and Juanito Valderrama, Carmen Sevilla, Imperio Argentina, María Caballé, Catalina Berreño, Enrico Caruso, Estrellita Castro … and other great artists.

The ruined theater is owned by the Spanish State, which should strengthen efforts to save this historic monument.
