The Lyrick Theatre, located in Santa Maria degli Angeli, Assisi, was inaugurated in May 2000. This theater structure emerged from the former industrial chemical department of Montedison, a 1950s project by the renowned architect Morandi, a pupil of the illustrious engineer Pier Luigi Nervi, thanks to the initiative of the American entrepreneur Richard Leach. Considered one of the most modern and fascinating municipal theaters in Italy, the Lyrick Theater boasts a 1000-seat audience and a large stage. For more than a decade, the Lyrick Theater stage has hosted the most acclaimed national and international theater productions. Currently, the theater is under the ownership and management of the Municipality of Assisi. The stalls of the Lyrick Theater have 1000 seats, divided into three sectors.
