The Theater is a must see in the city. The tours are 150 pesos and start at everty 15-minutes.

Although they say the tour lasts about 50-min, mine was 40 at most, and I felt that guests... More

We were very lucky saw Swan Lake- in sixth row, tickets were about $20 each- amazing value, beautiful space. We also did the tour, but having already seen a performance there, it was a bit underwhelming.

Not to be missed. While on tour there, there was a rehearsal for Swan Lake going on. It was delightful to see.

Teatro Colon is considered a "must do" and I think it is. I was impressed and it was nice to have something to do during the winter months as it was raining during our visit to BA. If you are in Buenos Aires in the summer and cant find something to do, definitely check out the theatre, as well.
