Visited on a Monday afternoon and took the guided tour in Spanish for ARS 150 (USD 18). There were about 25 people in the tour, the majority from Argentina and Brazil.

I went to see the Opera and even though I don't know much about it, the acoustics sounded phenomenal. It's really a beautiful theater, beautifully decorated. From what I hear, the prices for the Opera were reasonable compared to what you find in similar quality theaters and shows. I would certainly recommend a visit.

The Teatro Colon is a beautiful opera house with lavish interiors dating back from the beginning of the 20th century (replicas of different european styles, marble and marble ersatz, gold platings, etc..) The main negative aspect is that the walking tour covers only the sections of the opera which are visible when you buy a ticket to go see a... More

After reading Trip Advisor reviews. Decided to go to this Theatre. Close walk off Ave 9 de Julio. There was an English tour that lasted around 30 minutes at a reasonable price. If you are in the area you should check it out.
