“Many Dutch plays were performed in this theatre, as well as plays by writers such as Shakespeare, Moliere, Voltaire, and Corneille. On the 100th anniversary of the theatre, in the year 1737, it was Antonio Vivaldi himself who conducted the theatre’s orchestra. Many well-known guests visited the theatre, including the Prince of Orange, the King of Poland, the Russian Tsar, and the Elector of Brandenburg.”
