I liked the location, the architecture, the interior is really beautiful. It feels like you are back in the past. The atmosphere is fascinating. I watched the Amazonas Synphony Orchestra concert and a play about Maria Callas. They were both amazing.

The place is amazing inside and outside. The guided tour is essential to understand the historical context behind the existence of such beautiful place in this city. It also explain details of the construction, which is very influenced by the Palais Garnier (Opera de Paris).

This is a pretty impressive site on its own. When you think about the fact that it's over a hundred years old and in the middle of the Amazon, it becomes a must-see site. The tour is nothing special, but it's inexpensive ($10 USD) and let's you see most of the theater in only 45 minutes. With frequent tours in... More

This famous building has stood since it was constructed during the rubber boom that brought about the city of Manaus. It has had 3 revamps already; the penalty for being in such a humid environment. While it was interesting to see, the main interest is the sheer incongruity of such a building in that location. It does not rival any... More

On top of the good descriptions given in most guide books, the Teatro Amazonas also offers free concerts, and the seats are surprisingly comfortable. The interior is beautiful, and well worth a visit if you have the time.
