This theater is beautiful. A MUST, the theater is big, gorgeous, and the sound is quite impressive. If you can't afford to see a show, you should at least take a guided tour and get to know this impressive building.

I was not too interested in going but reading all the reviews convinced me to do the tour and glad I did. The tour costs 150 pesos (right now around US $ 18) and lasts about 50 minutes. The time really flies by. Not only is it a gorgeous building but the history is really fascinating! Tours are offered regularly... More

This has to be on the list of things to see when in this city. The Theatre has been restored to perfection. The tour provided was particularly well done with so much valuable information given. It was almost possible to see and hear the guests arriving! It is understandable that it took so long to build and then again to... More

Didn't see any performances but saw enough to appreciate the building and architecture. Can't vouch for the acoustics but still loved just seeing it.

It was a well spent delightful hour learning all about Teatro Colon. Learning the Parisien aspirations of the Argentinians, the Golden HAll, and the various stories from a well informed guide. We also went to see if we could give free tickets for a Sunday concert, a little birdie told us there were free concerts on a Sunday at 11AM,... More

The Colon was recently refurbished from top to bottom and looks fabulous now. The acoustics are perfect, as we confirmed by attending an operatic performance of "Tristan und Isolde" this month. Customer service and restrooms are also excellent. Beware that ticket prices are also at high international levels.

Buy your tickets online if possible. I paid twice the price buying them at the hotel however I had no choice and it was totally worth the money to hear the BSAS Symphony
