What keeps this for being excellent was that we were not able to be at a performance. The building is beautiful even on the rainy day during which we were there. The fresco and decor were stunning, and the tributes to composers are priceless. The reception room upstairs has amazing depictions.

We were on a 49 day cruise and we walked from our ship to the opera house early on a Monday morning. It was about a 15 minute walk. the streets were crowded with shoppers and felt quite safe. the building is very beautiful.....inside and out. We were guided thru the opera house by a knowledgable guide who spoke English.... More

This building is amazing, the architecture and the original furniture, paintings, crystals send you back in time to the boom of the rubber in the middle of the jungle.

You pay R$ 10 reais and have a guided tour telling you about the theater, the city, and the rubber era, how it was built and how the city lived around it.

Beatiful and colouful theatre. I didn't get the chance to see any plays or musical presentations in there, but I found the building and its surroubdings very peculiar and interesting. It is very beautiful and It was very good to see that there constatly are free presentations in the theatre. There is a hotel nearby wich has a rotating rooftop... More

The central area that this is located in is very pretty and an oasis of calm and peace. I didn't go inside as it was closed when I was there on a Sunday afternoon, but the theatre itself is a very impressive building.

You must see this even if you are only passing through Manaus. The decoration is magnificent. Lucky enough to go on a tour when the Orchestra of the Amazon was rehearsing so a free concert into the bargain. Very reasonable 20 minute guided tour.
