World-Class Theatre Productions at Montecasino
The Teatro at Montecasino in Johannesburg hosts local and internationally acclaimed world-class theatre productions that captivate and entertain. The spectacular Teatro at Montecasino features some of the best musical, dance, drama, comedy and theatre productions in South Africa.
The Teatro opened its doors in May 2007 with the international stage phenomenon – ‘The Lion King,’ co-produced by Lebo M and Pieter Toerien. This production ran for 36 weeks, making South African history when it broke all box office records in South Africa, with over 550,000 people having watched the show.
The Teatro is acoustically designed for large scale musical productions and can accommodate 1,870 people at full capacity. Despite the vast number of seats, the Teatro has an unmistakable intimacy, with no seat further than 33 metres from the stage. The Teatro was constructed at a cost of over R100 million by Tsogo Sun Gaming and is one of the 10 largest Lyric theatres in the world.
