The Tívoli Theater (Teatro Tívoli) is a performance hall in Barcelona (Spain, Catalonia) dedicated to theater and cinema. At times in its history, it hosted performances of opera and zarzuela, as well as musical works and premiere of some important works.

The current building dates back to a radical renovation, carried out in 1919. It has the capacity to accommodate 1,643 people, among the stalls, the club, the amphitheater and the side boxes. Decorated in the style of the beginning of the last century, there are many moldings and plant motifs in gold, as well as red seats and curtains.

The theater premiered performances of works such as: La Dolores, opera by Tomás Bretón (1895), directed by the same author; María del Carmen, opera by Enrique Granados (1899); Curro Vargas, by Ruperto Chapí (1899), Don Lucas del Cigarral, by Amadeu Vives (1899); the Spanish premiere of Marouf, an opera by Henri Rabaud (1919); Pelléas et Mélisande, by Claude Debussy (1919), The Legend of Tsar Saltan, by Nikolai Rimsky-Kórsakov (1933), Alcina, by Georg Friedrich Handel (1943), The Love of the Three Oranges, by Sergei Prokofiev (1949), Zar und Zimmermann, by Albert Lortzing (1951) and Svanda Dudák (Svanda the Piper), by Jaromir Weinberger (1954). In 1950, the world premiere of Merlin, by Isaac Albéniz, took place. In 1924, Richard Wagner’s Lohengrin was translated into Catalan and sung by Emili Vendrell.
