This building is a lovely (not identical) recreation of the Opera Garnier in Paris, though a bit smaller in stature. The interior is just as pretty as the exterior, so it's worth going to watch something while you're in Rio. The spectacles on show do vary in genre immensely, so check what's on before you go.

One of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Go there even if just to now the place with no shows. It is worth the ride.

Went to see a remake of "Opera do malandro". It was the first time I've been there, and I was amazed by its architecture and decoration. I've been to Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires and Manaus Municipal Theater, but Rio's was really something. The style is ecletic, easily seen by its classical front, inpired on Paris Opera, and then you... More

Great theatre but the tour is a little short. There are some parts of the theatre that you cannot use your camera so please listen to the guide on when you can use it.

I didn't go inside, but the outside I got to see on my way to Lapa and a few other times in passing. I wish I had had time to go inside. It must be gorgeous if it looks anything like the outside.

We were in town for the World Cup, but saw the reviews for this attraction and had to check it out. We were blown away at how beautiful this theatre is, and we were also blown away when we saw our first ballet production, Bayadere. The performance was first rate, and the theatre itself was stunning inside and out. If... More

The local production of Bayadere was stunning. A difficult classical ballet, it was performed with grace and style that one often doesn't find away from the ballet capitals. The building is beautiful, make sure you visit the bar on the outside balcony.

Discovered this sight by accident when arriving to Lapa one night. We only had a chance to observe it from the outside, but the architecture is beautiful colonial style. Worth seeing when in Rio for sure.
