In the meantime the theatre has been restored to its original glory: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Teatro_Capit%C3%B3lio

Parque Mayer is tucked away just off the main street in Lisbon and is like going back into some wierd time warp, there are four theatres grouped around a car park, the Capitolio, teatro maria vitoria, teatro ABC and the teatro Variedades.
All in use except the Capitolio which is a magnificent but crumbling wreak, lots of water has got into the reinforced concrete giving the building a leporous exterior

I have visited Lisbon for both work and play. It is a city remarkable for many things, architecture being one of them. Cities across Europe are recognizing the importance of their Modern buildings, and Lisbon should be no exception. The Teatro Capitolio may no longer strike the visitor the way it did in its heyday, but it remains a valuable part of the city’s architectural story. It is sad to know that the renowned architect Frank O. Gehry has proposed the site’s redevelopment with insensitivity and such disregard for the building. I truly hope the Captitolio’s listing by World Monuments Fund will wake him up!

Pictures of Teatro Capitolio here and here.

(And in Portuguese, as in English, “capital” with and “a” and “capitol” with and “o” are different things. The name of the theater is spelled with an “o” in the middle: Capitolio.)

Also, if Frank Gehry has anything to do with any project that replaces this theater, he will lose the last scrap of respect I still have for him.
