Andorra offers a wide choice of theatre for all ages. Even though the country does not home big theatres facilities, each Andorran villages and parishes owns its own little theatre.
The Andorra National Scene is the country main entity dedicated to the performing arts promotion in the Principality of Andorra. The Andorran Government, La Massana Comú and the Crèdit Andorrà Foundation design the ENA Foundation (Escena Nacional d'Andorra) board yearly. Check out its performance schedule here (in Catalan).
Most of the Andorra National Scene and independent plays are performed at the Teatre Comunal (webpage in Catalan) in Andorra's capital. This is the biggest theatre in Andorra and has capacity for 250 people.
Notice that Cirque du Soleil performs every month of July in Andorra La Vella for free. The 60 minutes show begins at 10pm, and it is preceded by a previous animation.

Since October 2017, Andorra homes a new national opera choir. A project led by the association "Andorra Lírica", which has been working for more than two years to bring this musical genre closer to the citizens. The new opera choir has been named "Cor de l'òpera d'Andorra" and it allows those who visit it to participate in the shows organized within the Opera Season.
The National Classical Orchestra of Andorra (ONCA) was created in 1992. It was a Government of Andorra initiative and it is currently managed both by the Ministry of Education and Culture and the "Crèdit Andorrà Foundation".
