  Teatro Colon
by swesn

Teatro Colon was opened in 1908. This is one of the world's greatest opera houses due to its capacity, its acoustics and its workshops.

Its interior is resplendent, with every marble tile, furniture, crystal, plush, imported from Europe.

Guided tours will take you to visit the underground network of dressing rooms, workshops, storage rooms, and rehearsal halls, with even a replica of the stage under the Avenida 9 de Julio.

Main entrance on Libertad, between Tucuman and Viamonte.

There are interesting cultural programmes all the time. Depending on your interests and what you can afford, you can visit the ticket office from Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 8pm, Sunday 10am to 5pm.

Some tango performances (orchestra, not dance) offer really cheap tickets.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
