Municipal Theatre information
The appealing Municipal Theatre has changed little since it was built in 1822, making it the oldest theatre in the Indian Ocean region. Decorated in the style of the classic London theatres, it seats about 600 over three levels and has an exquisitely painted dome ceiling with cherubs and chandeliers. Performances are in the evenings – usually at 8pm.
Look for announcements in the local press or call the tourist office to find out what's on. Tickets can be purchased at the box office in the theatre itself.
