I very much enjoyed the tour! It was led by students in international relations and broken up by performances from students pursuing their degrees in theater, and it was just so lovely. The teatro is also beautiful and the historical details are stunning. Tours are...More

We love visiting places for art, and though we were going to be underwhelmed by this place. The opposite happened: despite being discreet and small this theatre is a masterpiece. Really recommended!

If you can schedule a visit, there are guided tours to the theatre. This building is the house of the "comedia nacional" that had the mission to develop theatre plays by Uruguayan authors. His stage hosted international artists like Enrico Caruso (in 1903). Sarah Bernhardt,...More

Beautiful place. Check out for the guided tour. Located central in the old town, near the stores and bars.

We went inside and enjoyed a small art expo, and also explored the lobby and other outside spaces. Nice gift store. A cafe next door. Would like to see a performance here.

We had a cruise sponsored production here and it was wonderful. Very talented singers and dancers in a building that is truly grand. The ornate ceilings and balconies take to an era long ago. You feel very grand in this building.

This theater is located near Plaza de la Independencia and is nice from outside. It looks like a Roman temple. Worth the picture.

Has vibes. Nice surprise, better than expected from a city often overshadowed by its neighbours Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro. Teatro Solis as evidence of a vibrant cultural life.
