It is contemporary and small enough that all the seats are good. The national companies perform here and they have a lot going on. It is not in the best neighborhood but there are plenty of taxis and parking areas.

A modern concert hall and theatre, in one of the ugliest parts of downtown Montevideo. It opened 25 years late. The previous building burnt down. You may be forgiven if you walked past it without noticing it. It looks like just another drab modern building anywhere in the world

Well Sodre is just a Theatre is not to be visited just for the theatre but of course is really nice and comfortable to go and see something that is being offered while you are there.

Very impressive, great facilities but too vertically built and if you sit in the 4th segment wow! It is almost like watching a performance in the street but seen from the 7th floor of a building. ! Was not impressed with seating at that location. You see performers from the top of their heads.

Located right on 18 de Julio in Montevideo. The performance was the end of year concert of the Sodre orchestra. The orchestra played Franz Peter Schubert, Alfredo Minetti and Astor Piazzolla. Simply amazing and only cost $6.25 for a seat near front row.
