General San Martín Theatre | San Nicolás

It is part of the “Complejo Teatral Buenos Aires”, consisting of San Martin, Regio, De La Ribera, Presidente Alvear and Sarmiento theaters, controlled by the city Culture Bureau. This theater was created due to a project presented in 1906 by the Socialist government official Alfredo Palacios, who proposed a non-commercial theater, for educational and enjoyment purposes. However, this idea was not only carried out until 1936 by the city authorities. The first manager of the theater was Leonardo Barletta, a great figure in the off-theater circuit. Activities started in the Teatro Nuevo, on 1930 Corrientes Avenue. Nevertheless, an act by the city legislation put an end to the activity; the plan was resumed in 1944 with the inauguration of the Buenos Aires City Theater, which later received the current name. The construction (in the original location) was in charge of the architects Mario Roberto Alvarez and Macedonio Oscar Ruiz. The official inauguration took place in 1960. Its three halls have received the most important theater celebrities (ballet, music and dance) along a century’s development. It has a permanent theater staff, a puppets staff, and a Contemporary Dance Ballet. It has become, with the passage of time, the most important complex in Latin America, with a great flow of activity and influence worldwide. The three-structure building takes up a total surface of 30000 square meters, with 13 aboveground levels and 4 underground ones. It offers three theater rooms, a movie theater, exhibition halls, storage rooms and cabinets where all the cultural and artistic activity takes place.
