Theatro São Pedro celebrates 100 years with one of the richest and most surprising stories in national music. Opened in a time of cultural flourishing, the theater is part of the tradition both in the opera houses created in the late 19th and 20th centuries and the proliferation of concert halls in the neighborhoods of São Paulo. It is the only remnant of the time when culture spread through the streets of the city, promoting concerts, galas, evenings, operas and operettas. In these 100 years, the São Pedro Theater went through various phases and reinventions. It was once a cinema, theater and, without stable bodies, it received traveling companies that established operas and operettas. Between comings and goings, the theater was the scene of political and cultural resistance, and received great names from our music, such as Eleazar de Carvalho, Isaac Karabtchevsky, Caio Pagano and Gilberto Tinetti, and has hosted concerts by Osesp. After undergoing a restoration, it reopened in 1998 with the installation of La Cenerentola by Gioachino Rossini. Little by little, the opera came to occupy a prominent place in the São Pedro program, and in 2010, with the creation of the São Pedro Theater Orchestra, this vocation was reaffirmed. Over the years, his lyrical seasons opted for diversity, well-known titles from the traditional repertoire, some works performed in addition to the operas of Brazilian composers, making Theatro São Pedro a reference in the country’s lyrical scene. Now, the São Pedro Theater, an institution of the Government of the State of São Paulo administered by Santa Marcelina Cultura, a social partner organization of the Secretary of Culture and Creative Economy of the State of São Paulo, begins a new stage, respecting its own history and stay tuned for new challenges. of art, culture and society.
