Photographer's Note

The National Theater of Rhodes Greece, Dodecanese: The National Theatre of Rhodes is an impressive building ideally located in the Town Hall Square. It is one of the finest specimens of the International and the Fascistic style of architecture. The innovative manner in which glass bricks have been used in this magnificent edifice is truly outstanding.

The white stripe on the building, which is now masonry, was the glass-brick constructions mentioned in the demolition.

I am an architect, not a politician.
I donít care what system built a building, Iím looking for values.

Of special importance is the performance hall, which is rather high and quite long. The Performance Hall is recognizable by its spacious balcony, theater boxes, and a well-stocked bar. The National Theatre of Rhodes was in 1937 by an anonymous architect.

Initially, the edifice was referred to as the Teatro Puccini. It used to be one of the most modern theatres of its era, so much so that even operas were performed. Presently the theater serves a dual purpose, theatrical performances and as a cinema.

We are approx. We have been visiting Rhodes every year for 20 years. We have never been able to see this building interiors before.

They started renovating sometime, but donít know when it will be completed.
