Forget standing in line. We arrived 10 minutes before the free opera and walked right in and found seats, no problem. A very beautiful building that I will never forget. The opera was grand. Lasted exactly one hour.

Beautiful, excellent acoustic, a surprising reminder of Manaus' glory days. Take the guided tour as there are lots of details you will miss if you just walk around.

We went on an English speaking tour of the theatre which was conducted by an amazing young man who was filled with enthusiasm for his task. It is a marvelous venue and the staff take obvious pride in the theatre. We were so impressed we returned for a music and dance review that evening. Highly recommended.

The only truly grand beautiful building in Manaus. I arrived at 3:45pm and went to the ticket office. I was expecting to pay for a tour, but they told me the tours were free and there were tours in English every half an hour. So I was able to join one at 4:15pm. There was only a small group of...

For me it is a "Must go" in Manaus. Great place to be with family, friends or by yourself. Cheap tour and lot of interesting informations with english options (not sure if they have more language choices).

Inaugurated in 1896, this amazing Opera House is well worth a visit. In the middle of downtown, and beautifully maintained. Closes on Mondays. We got an excellent English tour. The guide was very good, relaxed and very knowledgeable. Also attended a dance concert in the evening. Just being inside is a treat. Main problem is lack of internet information about... More

The building looked nice enough from the outside. It's an interesting place. Unfortunately, due to budget, cuts it was closed on the day we visited.

To specify : we didn't take a tour, we just looked around. Very pretty, don't leave Manaus without having seen it.

I came here in a hurry just before a quick supper, then heading back to hotel for ride back to airport. I wish I would've had more time to visit and get an English or Spanish speaking guide, but to get upstairs to the balcony, I had to have a Portuguese speaking guide, of which I was in no mood...

One of the most visited attractions in Manaus. An opera theatre build like the Opera Garnier in Paris and La Scala in Milan at the height of the rubber gold rush (1896). Well preserved and maintained. We were blessed by having a visit with an English speaking cicerone for just 20 BRL each (kids pay 10). Worth going and listening.

Thank Mauro G
