Built in the turn of the 19th to 20th century this theater has a parisian style. Inside is even more remarkable with a beautiful stairwell. Take a look inside.

It seems the schedule to see the interior is picked every day. I was there twice, different schedules each time. Could not visit the interior. The Tourism Ministry should see into these!

This is an old, beautiful theater. It is always worth checking to see if there is any upcoming performance you can go to there. It's an experience to attend any event at this theater. Unfortunately, it is used infrequently. Do walk by and see if there are any posters announcing an event, and if it's an event you might like,... More

Tour was only 20 pesos & guide took us every where in the Building. Spanish speaking guide only. We were the only people to enjoy this private tour.

We went to a movie here. The theatre has beautiful old plaster decorations but comfortable modern seats.

The exterior architecture gives a hint at the grandeur you will experience once you pass through the main door way. Both the outside and the interior are lavishly done and well maintained. I got a private tour by asking one of the workers who was repairing a bit of work near the front doors. He walked me through the theater... More

In a most lovely Theatre. Attended The Saint Petersburg, Russia ballet companies performance of Swan Lake. The Teatro is lovely place with gold trimmed walls, seating perhaps 600 or so. The acostics are excellent. We had third row aisle seats for 500 pesos (about $38 US) about what the rear balcony at San Francisco would cost us. Having seen about... More

If there is a performance at this early 20th Century theater, don't miss it. It exhibits European influence on the culture & arts of Mexico & is just a fun venue for all sorts of wonderful programs, many of them free.

If you are lucky enough to be vacationing in Oaxaca, when there is a special event going on at the Teatro Macedonia Alcala, you will be very lucky indeed. I and two friends went to see a Russian ballet at the theater in October. The show was fabulous. The theater is old and wonderful and beautiful with a huge center... More

We see the HD Met Opera at home in a movie theater, but in Oaxaca it is shown in the beautiful European-style opera house, one of the many treasures of this fabulous Mexican city of music, dance, art and culture! We also saw a fully staged production of "El Murciélago" (Die Fledermaus! [The Bat!]) recently - a beautiful production with... More
