We had been advised that the Dom Pedro V Theatre was rarely open for the public, unless there were events being held there. However, we were visiting the St. Augustine's Square area so we stopped by for a visit. As advised, the Dom Pedro V Theatre was closed with a sign saying 'under renovation'.
It seems this is a difficult attraction to visit. However, it is an interesting and attractive building to to look at, making a good place to stop and view for a few minutes after seeing the other UNESCO attractions in this area.
In the area of St. Augustine's Square, there are a handful of World Heritage attractions that you can visit in addition to the Dom Pedro V Theatre. These include St. Augustine's Church, Sir Robert Ho Tung Library and St. Joseph Seminary and Church. Also, St. Lawrence's Church is a short walk down Rua de Sao Lourenco.
We are looking forward to a return visit to this area when the theatre is open for visitation as it has an interesting bit of performance history for Macau and Asia and is a unique inclusion in the collection of world heritage attractions that make up the Historic Centre of Macau.
