This is a once beautiful theatre that used to be frequented by high society and music lovers as a cross section of Venezuelan Society. Since Hugo Chavez took it over to hold his "meetings", I don't know anyone that dares go close to the place. It is in front of the old Hilton Hotel which is now a Chavista "ALBA"... More

The architecture is postmodern and quite interesting. The theatre also has a commendable programme of concerts, operas, ballet performances etc.

Got 10 BsF tickets to see contemporary dance as part of the International Festival of Theatre. Although we didn't get to go into the main hall, the basement was set up for a surreal hour of lights, colours, music and stamina.

In its day it made Caracas very proud to have such and imposing theatre. It could have been called the Opera House but is called simply teatro.

The best concert hall in all of the country, located next to a revered meeting place for forward-thinking artists ("el Ateneo"), is now President Chávez's place for delivering his day-long speeches. The Anna Julia Rojas hall and the José Félix Ribas hall were places I wasn't allowed to go to until I was old enough to sit through a classical... More
