We attended a concert of the Santiago Philharmonic Orchestra here. Although had the cheapest (back row, 4th balcony) tickets, we clearly and easily heard every note and saw every musician. Fantastic acoustics in a magnificent building. Definitely recommend stopping by the box office and buying tickets for any performance here..

Try to attend something here ... its a classy place right in the centre of things. The staff are so-so in the English dept, but they're eager to help and very polite. We saw Verdi"s Requiem by the Santiago Philharmonic it was the most dynamic energetic version Ive heard. Theres something on year around here.

A great Theater/Opera house in the downtown area, worth seen it at day and at night - not so expensive

Just finished with a English only tour of the theater with Anna. Her English is perfect and we learned quit a bit about the theater and its history. Lovely theater, small compared to Paris or Buenos Aires, but very well maintained. Tour cost about $35 for the two of us. It would have been much less expensive per person for... More

Santiago philharmonic and Ballet surprised me in a very good way. The Swan Lake is my favorite ballet and at this time I had the opportunity to experienced it with the locals and it was amazing. The theatre is extremely beautiful and go over there to watch a show will become a whole experience you will never forget. Totally recommended

As an opera fan and husband of an trained opera singer I have frequented many opera houses. This is a beautiful opera house but with such distance from more main stream opera and ballet do not expect too much. The standard of productions varies greatly from those that are domestic born as opposed to travelling productions. For what it is... More

A beautiful old building from the outside covering a large area with some palm trees obscuring some of the building's view, unfortunately I didn't have much time to stop and look.

This theatre was originally built in the mid 1800s. It has been destroyed by earthquakes, and fires, several times and rebuilt quickly each time, for it is such an important part of culture in this fine city. With each renovation, the interior has become more and more opulent. The external face of the theatre is especially beautiful.

Recently and beautifully restored after a fire, the Teatro Municipal is a wonderful example of classic theatre architecture, red velvet, plasterwork and cherubs feature largely in a horseshoe shape similar to Covent Garden or La Scala with high colonnaded galleries and a big uncovered stalls/orchestra. Maximum ticket price is about 47.000 pesos but for the experienc of just being there... More
