Cervantes Theater ("Teatro Cervantes"), Buenos Aires
Opened in 1921, the Cervantes theater, built in Spanish baroque style, is now a leading venue for national theatre.
The original owners, Spanish actress Maria Guerrero and her husband, invested their fortune in building the theatre, but three years later it was bankrupt, and they were forced to sell it. It has since depended on government funding.
Many elaborate aspects of the Cervantes Theatre's decor --tiles, stained-glass windows, hand-crafted ironwork, seats, curtains and tapestries-- were commissioned in Spain by then king Alfonso XIII. Nearly destoyred by a massive fire in 1961, it was rebuilt and reopened in 1968.
