The Teatro Bolivar opened on 15th April 1933 in the heart of the colonial-historical Quito as a movie and live performance theatre. The Teatro Bolivar seats 2,400 in two levels (main floor, balcony and side boxes). It was, during decades, the greatest theatre in Ecuador.

After a decline in the 1980’s and early-1990’s, the theatre was restored and renovated in 1997. On 8th August 1999 a fire destroyed almost 70% of the theatre, but it underwent reconstruction and has reopened.

soy estudiante de acustica arquitectonica. soy ecuatoriano y hago la tesis de Acondicionamiento acustico del teatro bolivar. mi nombre es Alonso Cevallos Cabrera resido en Sangolqui Viñedos Terracota H casa 48. deseo conocer acerca del estudio acustico de este diseño ya que he hallado defectos en el diseño como focalizaciones sonoras, efecto tambor, realce de frecuencias medias, coloracion de la voz, modos normales de vibracion, entre otros. la acustica de recintos es una ciencia moderna que crecio mucho en los ultimos 50 años posteriores a la construccion del Teatro Bolivar.Esto significa que se debe replantear su acondicionamiento acustico, de lo cual estoy encargado.
Seguro de contar con su respuesta personal le anticipo mis agradecimientos. informe a
