“Opera The Barber of Seville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We love to come that wonderful opera house. The perormances are always beautiful and they have some really amazing singers as last time Nelson Martinez as Figaro.
The tickets are very fair prized. It is always a pleasure. Thanks a lot!

“Recently visited for Madama Butterfly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

This historical theatre is the scene for my childhood elementary trips to various shows, from Carmen to awards ceremonies. What you forget is just how small and quaint it is if you haven't been lately. The twinkling stars on the ceiling, the pretty frescos and balconies, and the fact that every seat gets you close enough to see all the faces, just puts you into the show. No binoculars needed. You can hear a pin drop!

“Wonderful Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Gusman is a beautiful old theater in downtown Miami. We visit it every year for the Miami Film Festival. Has a huge pipe organ and a gentleman plays it while you enter and takes a bow when finished. Designed like you are in an outdoor amphitheater.

Loved the architecture. You can feel the Cuban influence in the decor.
