Valletta (, Maltese: il-Belt Valletta, Maltese pronunciation: [vɐˈlːɛtːɐ]) is the capital city of Malta. Located in the South Eastern Region of the main island, between Marsamxett Harbour to the west and the Grand Harbour to the east, its population in 2014 was 6,444, while the metropolitan area around it has a population of 393,938. Valletta is second only to Nicosia as the southernmost capital of Europe, and at just 0.61 square kilometres (61 ha), it is the European Union's smallest capital city.
Valletta's 16th-century buildings were constructed by the Knights Hospitaller. The city was named after Jean Parisot de Valette, who succeeded in defending the island from an Ottoman invasion during the Great Siege of Malta. The city is Baroque in character, with elements of Mannerist, Neo-Classical and Modern architecture, though the Second World War left major scars on the city, particularly the destruction of the Royal Opera House. The city was officially recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980.

A small jewel of art. The sound is clear. The stalls are a bit cramped and the seating need to be better organised as there isn't much leg space

Charming, beautiful, quaint, homely, good view from almost every position, comfy seats, historic, unique, that's just the building. We saw "Silence". It got all the emotions stirred, absolutely fabulous

A small yet extremely significant theatre in the heart of Valletta in the appropriately named Old Theatre Street (or Triq it-Teatru l-Qadim in Maltese). It is named after the Grand Master Manoel De Vilhenna and is one of the oldest theatres in the world. This theatre hosts many cultural events and is home to the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra.

New seating only recently installed which is more ideal and comfortable. Manoel Theatre provides an ideal setting which puts you back in time and I'd an occasion not to be missed by all arts lovers.

Nice experience although the bottom balcony chairs should be fixed as people tend to move them

Complete rip-off! I was told that there was no tour unless there are enough people, but I could do the tour on my own. I agreed and payed the 5 euro entry. I expected at least some information sheets or an audio guide, but there was nothing. I payed 5 euros just to look at the empty seats. I especially asked to see the costumes nd such other people mentioned here, but this was not possible. Incredible that they take any money for this - it was literally just looking at the empty seats. There are show tickets not much more expensive than that - including a show! So, either go there to see a show or with a large enough number of people for the tour - or my advice: don't support this rip-off!

It's a very old theatre but on the otherhand it is a wonderful place and in a very good shape. Also it is in renovation... Instagram : numandemirag
