In 1755, the Crown inaugurated the sumptuous “Tagus Opera”, an annex to the old Ribeira Palace, whose access was restricted. As it happens, the earthquake destroyed almost the entire city and this venue had an incredibly short life. Shortly after, the São Carlos theatre was erected in its place, and today it is Lisbon’s principal opera venue.
