Dom Pedro V Theatre - Review
A very important venue for events, festivals and concerts, the Dom Pedro V Theatre is one of those few places which are as important to the History of Macau as its present. Built in 1860 by the Portuguese and named after Peter V, the ruler of Portugal, the theatre has become a UNESCO heritage site.
It is important to the cultural heart of the city even today and is a prestigious venue in Macau. A very subdued looking building; it is certainly a very pleasing sight to the eyes. The blue and the while of the building, contrast beautifully with the dark wood of the doors. But it isn’t just the exterior that is pretty. The grand circular hall is also extremely beautifully decorated. If you are an art lover or a fan of the performing arts, this place is a perfect attraction for you.

Dom Pedro V Theatre, Macau Reviews
Be careful when you walk up and down the stairs
Dom Pedro V Theatre is one of the UNESCO World Heritage attractions in the Historic City Centre of Macau, situated at St. Augustine Square. Entry is free during opening hours 10.00am to 6.00pm. Inside, there is an performance waiting room with three chandeliers, wall mirrors as well as an entrance into the main theatre. You can look into the modern small theatre seating area and walk up a single staircase and take a look inside from the balcony level of the theatre. Photography is allowed throughout the attraction. The interior of Dom Pedro V Theatre is ok. The real star of this attraction remains the outside façade, which dates back to the 1870s. The façade is neo-classical style and beautifully decorated in a pastel green color. It is during the day and is very nice in evenings during sunlight hours. Overall, we much enjoy this particular attraction, finding it a unique inclusion in the World Heritage collection. While not much to actually see inside the theatre, the atmosphere is still very nice and its just fun entering and having a look inside the first Western style theatre house built in all of China.
Well preserved theatre and still in used today. If just walking in, you’re able to go upstairs to the Gallery to take a peek. If you’re lucky enough, go when there’s events happening, then you’ll be able to take a seat in the Circles.
