Montevideo is a beautiful, not very preserved, city. I had only one day to enjoy the town and was very excited to see the theatre. Although staff informed there would be a tour at 4pm ( it was like 3:50pm), when I went to buy the tickets I was informed the tour was cancelled. The staff, specially a girl called... More

The theater is centrally located modern and with great acoustics. This theater host plays, concerts and performances. Although it ook modern on the outside it is quite impressive in the inside since it has alot of wood trimming and comfortable seating.

The Solis Theater is the most important theater in town, recently renovated, it hosts plays , concerts and performances the whole year round. In the premises you will also find an excellent restaurant Rara Avis, and a nice coffee shop.

Located near the tall presidential offices, this theater is accessible and beautiful. The exterior is sort of neo classical. Inside, traditional Old World (yet, in the New World) theater. With plush seating, red velvet and gold, and excellent acoustics, it's a near secret that should not be missed. I really enjoyed it and wish I had seen a performance here.

By all means sign up for the guided tour, to learn the rich history of this beautiful cultural center of Montevideo and Uruguay. It's worth it to pay a bit more if you aren't fluent in Spanish--tours are also offered in Portuguese and English.
