The Golden Theater by night
Metropolitan Theater in Manila was established after world war II and became the home of countless known international and local artists.
“According to historical records, the Metropolitan Theatre was built in 1924 when Manila was not only the “Pearl of the Orient” but also the “Milan of Asia”, reputed to be as charming as Paris, considered a most extraordinary capital city, the only one that embraced four cultures — the Asian, European, North American and through Spain and Mexico, the Latin American. Italian opera singers came to town so did French and Spanish theater groups. Travel books raved about amazing, incredible Manila, truly Asia’s must see destination. “ (http://manilamet.webs.com/apps/blog/)
