Home to the Oaxaca Symphony Orchestra, this theater is one of a kind, it used to be a casino, and it's architecture is amazing. If you like classical music you should visit, free concerts by Oaxaca Symphony are on fridays at 8pm.

We check the Oaxaca Calendar and Que Pasa Oaxaca on line to see what films, concert or dance performances are scheduled in the theater. Many events are free or low cost. The extravagantly painted ceiling, with scantily clad floating beauties, is a delight, as are...More
