All reviews philharmonic orchestra beautiful theatre opera house main floor marble floors hidalgo avenue european style historic downtown nice building concert acoustics tickets jalisco balconies foyer theather stage
It's a great piece of history. The theater was made in the middle of XIX century. And it's pretty alive now, they have dance and musical performances. You can go inside even if there's no show to display just to enjoy the great interior
This is a very historic building and a must to visit. The architecture is fenomenal. It is in the historic center of Guadalajara and of you visit you will not be disappointed. I didn’t have estime to a actually go inside and would like to...More
The theater is opened to public viewing with no charge. I came by on a Thursday afternoon and was invited in for a look. The building is a work of art on the exterior as well as the interior. The oval lobby and skylight are...More
City center of Guadalajara. Excellent opportunity to see differents aspects of Guadalajara citizens. Plenty of people celebrating something. Workers Union asking to Governement. 15 years old young girls celebrating their anniversary. Group of asian visitors.
This building is one of the must see attractions in Guadalajara. It's a nice theater that I believe is open for people to see the inside from 12pm to 1pm on a daily basis. I heard wonderful things about its plays and oprah concerts.
If a trip to Guadalajara is in your future, plan it around the International Convention of Mariachi and Charrería (Mexico’s unique national rodeo-like sport). During the city’s annual August convention of mariachi musicians, students, teachers, artists, fans and lecturers, thousands of mariachi performers and enthusiasts...More
In the outside is interesting enough to make a lot of pictures but if you can, get a ticket for the many affordable events they have, get surprised by the old style interior, you will feel like you are in a movie where the high...More

Well, we sat around the middle, simply to try and see as much as we could. And it was great. But I would like to try the balconies, sometime. I suspect they'll be just as nice. Someone mentioned having front row seats and going again - I'm just not sure you can see as much from there. I just enjoy being able to see everything when I want - we've been there for ballets. But I'm sure the sound is great, anywhere. Wherever you choose, I suspect you'll still be pleased with the entire evening. It's a wonderful theatre.
Christmas Light Shows in the Plaza de la Liberacion? (4 Replies)
Has anyone seen info about light shows in the Plaza de la Liberacion? We saw YouTube videos of some spectacular Christmas lights in the plaza and projected on the Teatro Degollado. We would love to take this in while we are there later this month. Is there a link to a schedule? Thanks.

Now that I am on the ground I can answer my own question in the hope that it will assist someone else... There is a fantastic light show hourly from 6:30 to 9:30 in Plaza Liberacion. It is called Lumina GDL. I am not sure if this is every night, but last night there was a beautiful children's choir singing carols in the shadow of the gorgeous cathedral. (check YouTube for videos). I am not sure what date the shows start and end - but I highly recommend this if you are in town now or in...More

Teatro Peon Contreras Performance Schedule February, 2013 (1 Replies)
Hello, We are hoping to see an opera or zarzuela performance specifically at the Teatro Peon Contreras Opera House in late January/early February 2013. I have searched for a schedule but unable to locate for 2013 and from what I've read, sinfonia is not .at this Opera house. We can travel anywhere in Mexico for a good "zarzuela" (light opera). I've heard of Zarzuela festivals, anyone have any info on when/where in Mexico? We have been to Bellas Artes in Mexico City but they tend to...More

How many days should we book to see the Guadalajara area? (3 Replies)
Hi-- My husband and I are going to be in Puerto Vallarta for 7 days. We want to fly into Guadalajara and then eventually take the bus to PV. We plan on staying at a bed and breakfast in Tlaquepaque. We have the option of staying anywhere from 3-5 days to see the Guadalajara area. We are in our 50's just to give you an idea of what type of things we are interested in seeing. We do not spend a lot of time shopping other than to buy some souveniors for our family. We plan on walking through the...More

The Treatro has Sunday performances often. I would not spend that much time in Telequepaque as it is small & basically a shopping area. I urge you to stay in the Historic district for most of the time with 2 nights in Telequepaque at the most. I would have no problem filling 5 days there. We have been many times including a 7 day honeymoon in '98 & 3 nights this December at the Quinto Real Mexico's finest hotel IMO. Suite 45 (Our Honeymoon one we always return to)le bargain. Check it...More
