Nicosia, the capital city of Cyprus, is the largest and most populated city on the island. It is situated in the centre of the country and it carries a long and complex history; inhabited for over 4500 years, the Cypriot capital since the 11th century and the world’s only remaining divided capital. Today, Nicosia is the financial and business heart of Cyprus as well as a truly multicultural city where the past and the present meet and merge.
The Nicosia Municipal Theatre is a historic building on Museum Street in Nicosia. Since its opening in 1967, it has been a renowned venue for performing arts in Nicosia and across the island. The theatre, which had fallen silent since a 2008 roof collapse, has now been fully restored and modernised. With a seating capacity of 1.000, it is now the largest theatre in Cyprus.
