A must visit if you come to Montevideo. Make sure you attend a concert or play. If you speak Spanish, I recommend Comedia Nacional (the state theatrical company) performances. Not only they are of very high quality, but the prices are very cheap, what Uruguayans call "precios populares". They range from 75 to 150 Uruguayan pesos (yes! from 2 to... More

Nice place to visit and a opportunity to have an overview of the History of Montevideo, as most of the Opera Houses build in South America they are a replica of the European ones

Very old theatre lovingly restored. The tour cost just 60 Paesos & was well worth it. I had pleasant Law student all to myself & she was great. Beautiful theatre built by Freemasons in 1830?

The Solis theatre in Montevideo is well worth a visit. The building dates from 1856 and was renovated in the last decade. It reopened 12 years ago after being closed for 7 years due to the works. The building is magnificent and they run guided tours, that last for a little more than 30 minutes, every hour during the day.

This is the most famous theatre of Uruguay, and all the best spectacles had used to come to sing or dance here, it has been reopened a few years ago. It´s a historic building, and it´s one thing that the visitor has to do

You have to purchase a ticket at the ticket counter. No advance reservation needed. The English language tour of this theatre is NOT in any way similar to the super-professional and very expensive tour of the Teatro Colon across the water. The Solis staff will speak a little about the general history of the building and show you a room... More

Unfortunately the city was occupied by a graduation ceremony when we visited so we didn't have a chance to see inside. Otherwise the architecture is pretty impressive. Located a few meters from Plaza Independencia so very easily accessed from the city centre
