Teatro Ángela Peralta

Theater in Mazatlán

Named after a 19th-century soprano and constructed between 1869 and 1874, this 1366-seat theater just off Plaza Machado was a thriving center of local cultural life for nearly a century. Having fallen into decay, it was slated for demolition by the city government before dedicated local citizens came to its rescue in the late 1980s. The three-level interior has been restored to its former splendor; all kinds of cultural events are again staged here, including the annual Festival Cultural Mazatlán.
