Yesterday I saw a Christmas concert at Palácio das Artes. The Symphonic Orchestra of Minas Gerais, The Lyrical Choir of Minas Gerais and the Adolescents' choir presented songs by Benjamin Britten, Handel, Christmas themes compilation and others. It was a superb performance. Its acoustics is very good and even if you sit up on the balcony/circle, you have an amazing... More

I liked very much this place. There is a Café with a variety of delicious cakes and sweets to taste. The exhibition was fantastic. I highly recommend this place to visit if you like arts.

If you are in Belo and have a chance to go to the Palacio da artes for a night you must do so. It is an spacious venue with good seats and good accoustics. Do not miss a chance to visit the local arts fair during the day hours. On sundays you can see the BH fair that goes from... More

Great photographic exibit! Well organized and displayed. Completely free! Photos taken over a span of many years from across the globe. Really quite thought provoking and at times enchanting. Salgado has a skill as a photographer and an eye to see the beauty in the most interesting of subjects.

If you have some spare time in Belo Horizonte and is fond of culture, check out the events taking place at Palacio das Artes. The week I was there in August 2014 was great, an excellent photography exhibition and some Kubrick´s movies rolling every day. There is also a good cafe where you can take a break if you're walking... More

I missed the music and major exhibits during my visit, but enjoyed the Cafe and the arts. I should have tried to go when there was something interesting scheduled, but not knowing, I went at the wrong time on the wrong day. CHECK THE INTERNET BEFORE GOING.

one of the best theaters in Belo Horizonte, it usually heads the main Theather presentations, operas and ballets. We do not miss a Corpo Ballet presentation. It is about modern dancing with a lot of local MInas and Brazilian references and a lot of personality.

My husband I had the pleasure of attending 2 classical concerts here this month. Both were of a high standard and very well attended. Concert hall was spacious and very comfortable. Staff most attentive. Unfortunately we could not get tickets for Beethoven's 9th concert at end of the month....fully booked out. We are not surprised. Shop attached for tourist goods... More
