The theatre is dedicated to Francisco de Rojas Zorrilla (1607-1648), dramatist from the Spanish Golden Age, born in Toledo. It was built on the site of a Corral de Comedias (1575) and its successor, a comedy theatre (1630). Designed by Raimundo Amador de los Rios, the present theatre opened on 19 October 1878.

Today, the Teatro de Rojas is the only theatre in Spain and one of very few in Europe that still features its original stage machinery, filling three storeys below the stage. Additionally, it houses a unique construction from the same time that allows elevating the entire parterre to stage level. All in perfect working condition and to be discovered during guided tours.
