Teatro Peón Contreras (Peón Contreras Theater) - Historical Building Merida - Mexico

The Yucatán Symphony Orchestra and other local, national and international artists present performances of the highest quality at Teatro Peón Contreras. It was named for Yucatecan poet and playwright Jose Peón y Contreras and designed by the Italian architect Pio Piacentini and engineer Enrico Desserti. The theater opened its doors in 1908 and can hold its own with the finest European opera houses. A gleaming white marble staircase leads from the lobby to the elegant second floor loggia where crowds gather for intermission drinks.
