Apollo Theatre

Location: Ermoupolis   

The Apollo Municipal Theatre of Syros, Cyclades Greece: The Apollo Municipal Theatre of Ermoupolis was built in 1864, by the Italian architect Pietro Sampo. It is placed on Miaouli square, in the center of Ermoupoulis, and constitutes a miniature replica of La Scala di Milan. It is made of white marble and limestone and has two floors. It also has many beautiful wall paintings and wooden tiers.

This theatre was the first opera house in Greece. Until 1944, Italian operas were frequently presented there. Then the building was destroyed almost completely by the Germans. In 1970, there was an unsuccessful attempt to restore the theatre. Later on, another attempt had better results and today the Apollo Municipal Theatre hosts some of the most important events that take place in Ermoupolis.
