With just 1 short day in Montevideo (from our cruise) we were disappointed to learn from the Teatro Staff that they only accept Uruguay Pesos for payment of the entrance/tour fee. A big "NO" to US $, credit cards and other foreign currencies! They told us where to change our US$ and to come back. With time constraints and need... More

The visit was enhanced by the performance of 3 actor-singers who popped up in the main entrance the theater and in the modern theater. I loved our guides and the anecdotes . It is a contrast to the theater in Buenos Aires which is more regal

August is their winter and on Friday afternoons there is a tango milonga in the large conference room. A wonderful experience, young and old dancers. Great music. Saturday afternoon they do it all over again on the terrace outside. There are two restaurants one is a café and other fine dinning. They looked good.

This is one of the most beautiful buildings that i've seen in Montevideo. It's located after the Plaza Independencia that is what devides the old town from the center of the city. When you arrive there you can see on the front door the right time to the visits with guides (of course you can walk around the theatre without... More

This place is stunning!! I was fortunate enough to be in montevideo when there was an opera here. Wow it was stunning, the acoustics were impressive as well as the striking architecture all added to a beautiful evening with the wife. Also I did the tour and it's well worth it.

We lucked out with the english speaking tour as it was much smaller than the 2 being run in Spanish. So much so that some bilingual tourists audibled over to our group for a more intimate tour. Either way, this place has some nice history, the tour was short and sweet and while not as glamorous as the one in... More

We booked for an orchestral concert at the last minute. Few seats were left but we were fortunate in finding better seats where the audience members hadn't turned up. Recommend anyone to try and see something here and enjoy the atmosphere.

Teatro Solis is a unique music hall. It is not an enormous but everywhere tou go is adequate. The restaurant and the bar are interesting. The shop could be better. The sound is really good and the local Orchestra knows what to do on the stage.

The Solis is indeed a gem, beautiful inside and out. But do try and see a performance when the place really comes alive. I bought a 'restricted view' seat to see the brilliant Moscow Soloists. To my surprise I had a perfect view of the full stage and had a superb evening. The box office staff were very friendly and... More
