In Argentina, by the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, several opera houses appeared, in both large cities and small urban centers. One example is the Teatro Muncipal in San Nicolás de los Arroyos, inaugurated on August 10, 1908. This paper analyzes the historical-artistic aspects of the theater and the imaginary it contributed to build in a provincial city at the beginnings of 1900. Some peculiarities of this theatre lead us to highlight alternative routes of artistic circulation, where Buenos Aires is not always the center and where local intermediaries have had preeminence; since a greater dialogue with the city of Rosario than with the nation’s capital was established.
