“Tour too expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

The tour of the teatro seemed way to expensive(20 USD), so we didn't bother taking it. Also I felt discriminated because Argentinians only paid 1/3rd that price. It looked like a very nice building from the outside.

“A Must See - historical and fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

The tour guide was excellent. They provide tours in English twice daily. Each guide is a current or former opera singer and are well versed in the theater's history.A highlight was listening to the acoustics in the theater when the tour guides sing. Acoustics are fantastic. She explained how they are renovating the entire theater and showed us places where one could see the old and new. Cleaning 100 years of grime is a painstaking effort. I wish them the greatest success. This is a true masterpiece in the old world traditions. Take the tour when in BA.

Well scheduled English-speaking tours. A beautiful venue and a must see. Tour guide provided the history of the opera house. Sat in briefly on a rehearsal.

It's a Wonderful place to visit, to do the guide tour. Will like to attend a show, concert to enjoy the acustic and be able to see it in real life. Have to congratulate the guide tours, they have a lot of information to share. Will go back anytime.
