Teatro Coliseu was established in 1897. Twenty-seven years later, the performing arts venue opened at its existing location adjacent to the Santos Cathedral. The entrance hall – with 39 chandeliers and 13 Doric columns – makes a great first impression. The auditorium’s main floor, along with three tiers of U-shaped balconies, has a seating capacity for 1,000. Frequent programs at Coliseum Theater include operas, ballets, musicals, plays and symphony orchestra concerts.
