A little piece of Europe in Rio, it reminds you a little influence of French style. Great place to take endless quantity of pictures of this area in Rio Downtown

This theatre has been beautifully restored with tons of marble and 43,000 sheets of gold leaf, as well as other materials such as serpentine, huge and expensive chandeliers and so on. There are stained glass windows, sweeping staircases and a huge auditorium with most seats having excellent views. It is worth taking a tour and if possible seeing a performance.

Just a heads up, there are hourly tours but you need to reserve space for the tour in the morning or a day before because they don't allow walk ins unless you're lucky and there is still space. We went in the afternoon and they didn't have space but were very lucky as a tourist had extra ticket reservations!! It's... More

The architecture is marvellous! I highly recommend that you watch a classical music concert here or a ballet presentation. A great place to take photos.

We had no chance to get inside because apparently we went back and forth for ticket purchase on 6 different people who gave us wrong information each time we inquired so we missed the guided tour and any show later. They seemed aloof to answer me in English as well :( Anyway, we were just content to have a 'glimpse'... More

I went to see Beethovens 9th symphony at Teatro Municipal. It was my most fantastic musical experience ever - and I am 55 and have seen Bob Marley and Bruce Springsteen live and tens of musicals in London and at Broadway. The building, singers (more than 100) and the orchestra. All the best ever.

I did not go inside but it is worth going just to see the building from outside. Grand architecture, sculpture and gleaming gold - a good sight on a rainy day. Plenty of other cultural sights and shopping streets nearby.
