“Wire Opera House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

I went during the day to visit this tranquil opera house surrounded by nature. The design of the building is interested in that it almost completely made of wire. You cross a wire bridge over a pond with a waterfall to reach the theater area. Definitely worth a look around.

“Curitiba's Wire Opera House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

It is one of the main postcards of Curitiba. Opened in 1992, The Wire Opera House was built in tubular structure and transparent polycarbonate roof. The design by architect Dominic Bongestabs, a Brazilian professor of Architecture and Urbanism. It has capacity for 2,400 spectators and a scene of 400m ² for the artistic and cultural presentations.
The external environment of the Wire Opera House is also beautiful. It was the place where an old quarry worked. Today, you can enjoy the native forest, a pond with carps, a cascade of 10 meters and several species of birds.
A fantastic place.
