The theatrical tradition in the village of Montecarlo dates back at least to 1639, when a group of young people proposed to the City to "buy or to make a scene and perspective to recite comedies, what not always habbino accattarla other cribs lower in Monte Carlo as they did so far ". Around 1750, the Academy bought a property owner and made it into a theater, perhaps a rectangular plan: the establishment was suppressed by the Grand Duke of Tuscany in 1791, along with many others of the genre, but the theater was reopened a few years later, in 1795.

The Academy was re-founded in that year under the new name of "Reassured" and the reconstruction of the theater was entrusted to the Florentine Antonio Kids. The harmonious and tiny oval room, capable of 200 seats, is surrounded by a double row of 22 equally tiny boxes, plus the four proscenium. The environment plays miniature structural characteristics and environment of the classic "Opera" of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

On the tiny stage also passed the whole repertoire of Italian opera, from Rossini to Bellini, Donizetti to Verdi, and nineteenth-century opera composers minor, today almost forgotten. After 1871, the young Giacomo Puccini attended the Theatre Reassured, during trips to Monte Carlo with his sister Ramelde, governess at home Macarini-Carmignani, today Palazzo Lavagna in via Carmignani. In 1894 the theater was once again restored and enlarged with the addition of the four "barcacce" proscenium.

For the 2016 season a billboard quite varied, with interpreters experienced alternating with proposals for new drama. Eight performances from January to April, for a billboard that skillfully blend classical and modern repertoire, involving big names in theater, television and music.
