Municipal Theatre

Location: Argostoli   

The Municipal Theatre Kefalos of Kefalonia: The Municipal Theatre Kefalos of Kefalonia is located in Argostoli, on Georgiou Vergoti street, just opposite the Archaeological Museum. This beautiful theatre is one of the largest and oldest in Greece. It looks impressive with its neoclassical architecture and the big yard in front of it. This theatre was inaugurated in 1858, when Kefalonia and all the Ionian islands were under the British rule. In fact, the first performance to take place there was the famous opera La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi.

Ever since, it became an important cultural centre for the presentation of operas and operettas in Greece, until it was bombed by the Germans in 1943, during the Second World War. The theatre was severely damaged at that time and only recently was it restored. Today, the Municipal Theatre of Kefalonia hosts many theatre performances, dancing shows, scientific conferences and artistic exhibitions. It has a large amphitheatre of 450 seats and other smaller rooms.
