El Gran Teatro Nacional will be ready by late this year, Pedro Morales, head of the Office of Educational Infrastructure, said in a live interview with El Comercio.

"The work continues with good progress. The project is about 65 to 70 percent complete. In July, the president, Alan García, will inspect it," said Morales.

He also emphasized the modernity and innovation of the Gran Teatro Nacional, located in the district of San Borja in Lima.

"The advance contract ends in December, when it will be completely finished. The finished building and technological advances will make this theater the most modern in South America and one of the best in the world," said Morales.
