This is one of the most wonderful opera houses in the world. It is worth visiting it n ot only attending an opera or ballet presentation but also taking a guided visit.

We absolutely fell in love with Teatro Colon. The tour was in English and it went by surprisingly fast (50min). Purchase your tickets in advance if you want a specific day and time (they book rather quickly). Tour guide was informative and funny. I would highly recommend and definitely worth the tour fee. An absolute must if you're visiting BA.

There are many tours a day in English and Spanish. The maximum size of the group is 34 persons, quite o.k. The guide told us lots of interesting stories about the history of the theatre. The tour takes about 50 minutes. Recommended (although the price is rather high, about 18 Euros)

This is an amzaing theatre.We took the guided tour in English with a lovely woman, and even had a chance to listen and see a rehearsal of a very contemporary piece of music. I would have loved to see a performance, since the acoustics are fantastic, but , unfortunately, my schedule was such that the Sunday performance of Madama Butterfly... More

A don't miss. Tours ongoing all day, but only in one language at a time, so be sure to check what time your language of choice steps off.
