The theaters in Naples are more than a cult. It is no coincidence that in a classic Neapolitan song there is a verse that says that the streets of Naples are a stage.
The great musical and theatrical tradition of Naples is known all over the world: artists from every country sing the Neapolitan Opera bringing the Neapolitan song in theaters around the world. Naples and the opera are viscerally linked, the San Carlo Theatre in Naples, in fact, is one of the oldest opera houses in Europe and also one of the most famous. But the city is home to many other theaters. The Neapolitan theatrical tradition has its roots in the commedia dell'arte, which reached very high heights in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries and still lasts today. To know it is enough to attend one of the many theaters of Naples.
