Jose De Alencar Theatre, Fortaleza Reviews
One of the greatest symbols of the Ceara culture is this theater that preserves on its name the spelling of the prominent Brazilian author “José de Alencar”. It was built between 1908 and 1910 with the budget from the cotton exportation. The “Belle Époque”, context when Fortaleza lived a progress mixed with glamor from French inspiration, influenced the architecture of the José de Alencar Theater. Originally, it was designed to be a garden theater, but the garden was only ready in 1975. Currently, the theater hosts plays and shows in addition to a performing arts school.
What an incredible place to visit in the centre of Fortaleza! It reminds me of the market in Santiago, Chile or the Opera house in Manaus where everything has been imported, apart from the wood, and assembled into a art nouveau masterpiece! The tour costs about $2US and is worth it. You get taken everywhere even into the costume room, on the stage or even underground to the dressing rooms.
Great for spectacles, a lot of them free, just need to check the official website for the monthly concerts and plays.
Perfect to visit and watch some Classic music
a place worth of its name and well honored by people. gorgeous, sophisticated and completely worth a visit
