San Giacomo Theatre


San Giacomo Theatre is located on the most central spot of the city, while it bejewels the Old Town and the famous road “Calle delle Acque”. The Theatre was operating as the centre of the Greek opera from 1733 until 1893, which nevertheless attracted many Italian compositors, who contributed to the evolution of traditional music. Therefore, the Ionian Music School was to be created. On the beginning of 20th century, it converted into the City Hall, while parallel to this the Municipal Theatre was being constructed. It was the ideal choice, which could operate as a bandstand while it was drawing theatre lovers.
