The theatre is marvelous and have many opera and concerts shows. If you can see some of them I am sure you will not regret. There are many presentations during the year and the tickets can be found in the theatre lobby or by internet.

The theatre is beautiful and the acoustics are clearly incredible. If you can take in a concert this would be a better way to experience the place. We queued for an hour or so at 11am, were told our ticket would be valid at 3pm (by this time it's about 12:30) and they are 250 pesos each. We came back... More

You don t have to reserve in advance, you just go anytime and you have spanish guided visits every 15 minutes which last +- 40 minutes. Check other languages which are more sparsely programmed. The fee is a cheap U$S 5 for local residents and a little more for foreigners. Knowing all other Opera Houses in the world I would... More

We booked to see Daniel Barenboim conducting three Mozart Symphonies. On arrival, the collecting of our tickets and being guided to our seats in one of the balconies was very abrupt and unfriendly. The Theatre is truly magnificent and the acoustics outstanding. The Buenos Aires Symphony Orchestra oozed enthusiasm and played extremely well obviously enjoying Barenboim leading them. Their playing... More

A couple of months ago I took my 10 year-old grandson to visit it. He was reluctant to go but, when I said to him that it is one of the very best in the world, he said: "Are you kidding?" and added: "One of the finest and it's here in Buenos Aires?" (and that gave me the idea for... More

We have seen great artists such as Paloma Herrera, and enjoyed a free rehearsal of Don Giovanni in this beautiful theatre. But be prepared to queue if you want a good seat.

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
