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.
