If you happen to be on a tuesday in the city, you may want to check Theatre Solis' website to see if you can attend one of these concerts. They are really amazing :) The theatre is really nice. They have a really good cafeteria, and next to the theatre a restaurant that's very trendy (Rara Avis).

Occupying a Prominent corner of the square/plaza this building with its fantastic architecture rests.Inside it is equally beautiful , maybe dramatic ! ! ! If you can see a performance while you are here you wont regret the experience.

My mom and I stopped in for a tour of Teatro Solis on a trip we took to Montevideo last year. I wish I had written this review sooner! The theater is absolutely beautiful, and the visit was made better by the tour we took. Teatro Solis offers tours in many languages, but unlike many places, the tours were given... More

If you're on a cultural tour of Montevideo, Teatro Solis is a must even if you only have 20-30 minutes. The tour is only $2 and the theatre is an architectural treasure. Nightly shows also very affordable. Check website ahead of time as they don't let you tour during rehearsals.

The tour of Teatro Solis is worthwhile as you will not only get to see the facility but also get a narration of the history and significance of the theater. For $40 URS (just under $2 USD) each person for tours in English, it is worth the time and money. Our family of five decided that we were interested in... More

If you're by Montevideo, check the program of Teatro Solis. COmdy, Drama, Opera, Concerts, you call it. Prices are afordable (i.e. not like the Met), so you can get a nice private balcony. They have shows mostly everyday, with great professional performers from the National Scene. Besides the plays or concerts, the ambiance of the theater is beautiful, acoustics are... More
