The theater designed by the architects Giovanni Antonio Medrano and Angelo Carasale.
The theater was inaugurated on the 4 November 1737 with a performance of Domenico Sarro’s Achille in Sciro.
At the time, it was the largest opera house in the world, seating 3,300.
The new theater was much admired for its architecture, its gold decorations, and the sumptuous blue upholstery.
From 1815 to 1822, Gioacchino Rossini was house composer and artistic director of the royal opera houses and he wrote ten operas during this time.
After the composition of Zelmira, Rossini left Naples with Colbran who had previously been the lover of the theater’s impresario, Domenico Barbaja.
The couple were married shortly thereafter. To replace Rossini, Barbaja signed up another rising star of Italian opera: Gaetano Donizetti.

Donizetti remained in Naples from 1822 until 1838, composing sixteen operas for the theater.

Giuseppe Verdi was also associated with the theater.
