Hosts good shows, but don't travel to see the theatre - it's modern and there's nothing special about the building itself. It's in front of a nice square which has a nice view of Federal University though (avoid walking around it at night time - dodgy area)

One of the better theaters in Brazil, in the opinion of actors and directors. By now, it will close to a great maintenance. A little expensive, better go on taxi - there is no free parking.

This is the most famous e most traditional theater in Curitiba, and is also home for the orchestra and ballet companies. It also hosts main plays during the Theater Festival, which happens once a year on the city. During the year, there are symphonies and ballet presentations, concerts, theatrical plays, etc., and some of them are free.

The orchestra is a good program, the ballet company (both the professional and the wonderful school group) is rather good. Tickets for the theatre own productions are inexpensive. It is a pity that the pragrammation is not more intensive.

In the audience, in smells like mold... Toilets are really old! The open bar is very very poor. Not expensive at all, but you get exactly what you pay for.
