Campoamor Theatre

Photographer's Name: 
Jacqueline M. Koh

In Central Havana, I stumbled across the Campoamor Theatre built in 1921 and now in ruins after a fire in 1949; it never opened its doors to the public again. As I walked through, the familiar melodies of 'Swan Lake' filled the theatre. There, I met Reynaldo, who once worked at the theatre as a lighting technician and sound engineer and after the fire, chose to make this old run-down theatre his home.
