The Lope de Vega Theatre was part of the Seville Pavilion built for the 1929 Spanish-American Exhibition, together with the Casino. The Lope de Vega theatre remains one of the most emblematic cultural sites and assets of Seville.

It was converted into the Municipal Lope de Vega Theatre on 11 April 1936, abandoning its previous name - the Exhibition Theatre. From 1960 onwards, the Theatre became more important through the work of independent companies such as “Gorca Pequeño Theatre”, “Tabanque”, etc. After some much needed renovation, it reopened in 1988 with a concert by the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Jerzy Maksymiuk, performing Haydn's Symphony no. 7 in F major. This was followed by other performances over the subsequent weeks: Cuarteto de Jazz (with Tete Montoliu),flamenco performances (Moraito Chico, José Mercé, Calixto Sánchez, etc.) and many more.

Each season, the Lope de Vega Theatre programmes more than 180 performances and host performances by renowned artists, attracting over 100,000 people each year: classical and ancient music concerts (the most prestigious Ancient Music Festival in Spain), jazz, new age, flamenco, copla, etc.
