But this festival is not just about the theater; also the “ticos" will enjoy shows of dance, folklore, concerts with national artists, painters and sculptors. In addiction, one of the sets will have a sample of cinema.
The Festival would not de complete without the presence of international artists of great reputation. In this way, year after year, our festival it’s becoming a great spectacle worthy to appreciate.

The National Theatre

The National Theatre was built in the year 1890. In the construction of this theater they intervened Costa Rican, Belgian and Italian. Being a legitimate Costa Rican pride, has been complemented with the “Plaza de la Cultura", the one that counts on art exposition galleries and cultural conferences with extensive and modern design which contrasts especially in its modernist style with the classic of the National Theatre.
This theater has seen to pass for its setting to the majority of the large theatrical companies of the world. Truly is an architectural feat and is a commemorative one that the love by the culture is alive and in good condition in Costa Rica.
