Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino or the CCP Little Theater is a conventional proscenium stage designed for drama, chamber music, solo recitals, lectures, and film screenings and has a capacity of 413. It was launched on August 24, 1971 with “Onyx Wolf” (Itim Asu) by Virginia Moreno as its inaugural production.

The stage curtain is a tapestry made in Kyoto, Japan based on the painting of Roberto Chabet , a Gawad CCP Para sa Sining Awardee. The stage floor, like that of the Main Theater, is also made up of Philippine Mahogany wood.

The theatre was named after a great Filipino playwright and dramatist who lived at the end of the country’s Spanish era. Most of Aurelio Tolentino’s pieces depict his interest for our liberation from the colonizers.
