With festivals like Moors and Christians, Carnival, and Las Hogueras de San Juan, Alicante's affinity for the dramatic is crystal clear. While the city itself certainly knows how to put on a great show, so do its theaters- and what's more cultural than a night out at the theater! Take in the musical stylings of Alicante's Symphonic Orchestra or a classic Lope de Vega play. Another entertaining option is to see, hear, and experience a "zarzuela," a light opera hailing from Spanish popular culture. Throw in opera, ballet, and hodgepodge of other top-notch arts performances and you've got an extensive and diverse range of options offered by Alicante's theater venues.
