Located in Bari, Teatro Petruzzelli is the fourth largest theatre in the whole of Italy.

The theatre was originally built in 1903 with the insides painted by the famous Raffaele Armenise. However, the theatre was completely destroyed in 1991 in a fire by arson. Rebuilt in 2006, the theatre as it stands today, lies in the hands of the city of Bari. The theatre reopened in 2009 with the performance of the Ninth Symphony of Beethoven. The theatre has since then bore witness to many such celebrated Operas, Orchestras and Ballets.

However, due to the poor economic condition of Italy the 2014 performances at the theatre were cancelled.
