San Carlo Theatre

King Carlo Bourbon built San Carlo Theatre in 1737 to give the city a new theatre representing the king power. During the eighteenth century, the theatre was renewed many times to meet the changed needs of updating or the need to improne the acoustics. In the first years of 1800 Domenico Barbaja was interested in starting a new renovation of the theatre to add new spaces for his activity of game of chance contractor. Antonio Niccolini (1772-1850) was the director of the renovations.
The leader of Neoclassicism in Naples intervenes many times on the building till the present shape; in the night of 13 February 1816 a fire destroyed the Neapolitan Maximus and only the perimeter walls and the adjoined part remained. Antonio Niccolini directed the rebuilding that was carried on in nine months and remade the hall as it was in 1812. The present foyer, realized in the eastern side of the Royal Palace garden was made in 1937 on the drawing of Michele Platania. In 1943 it was destroyed by a bombing and rebuilt immediately after the war.
Besides the revival of the melodramatic repertoire and of the nineteenth century masterpieces, San Carlo Theatre acted also to the revival of the comic opera.
