3 and 5 Avenida segunda entre Calle, San José, Central Valley 2221 4000, Costa Rica

Behind the columned, Neoclassical facade of San José’s National Theater, the opulent pink marble lobby with statues of Beethoven and other iconic composers gives way to a main auditorium with grand oil paintings of 19th-century Costa Rican life. The 1,000-seat theater was completed in 1894 at the height of Costa Rica’s coffee and banana boom; it remains the country’s primary performance center, hosting cultural attractions from flamenco to opera.
