Theatre History

The Republic Hall: In this hall old masonry and modern technology blend into perfection, the deep red theatre curtain and comfortable seating combined with yellowed old stone visible in the arches on the sides of the Auditorium create a warm and pleasing ambience. It should not be amiss to be reminded that the Republic Hall, apart from its major role as a conference venue, can hold stage productions on a level that compares favourably with international productions held in some of the major theatres in the world.

This includes visits of such prestigious companies as Cirque du Soleil, the Teatro alla Scala of Milan, the Teatro San Carlo of Naples, the Ballet Nacional de Espagna, the Belgian Philharmonic Orchestra, the Georgia State Theatre for Opera and Ballet, the Bratislava Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Athens State Orchestra and many other companies which graced the Stage of the MCC, entertaining thousands of people.

The impressive and imposing Republic Hall has been constructed in place of what once was the Main Courtyard of the Sacra Infermeria. In this hall old masonry and modern technology blend to perfection. The deep red theatre curtain and comfortable seating combined with the yellowed old stone visible in the arches on the sides of the auditorium create a warm and pleasing ambience. It is ideal for large scale meetings and conferences and is equipped with theatre lighting, sound systems and audio/visual facilities as well as Simultaneous Interpretation Facilities. World-famous orchestras, operas, ballets and theatrical performances have been produced on the magnificent stage of the Republic Hall.
