Certificate of Excellence

It is a very New Theater. The best acustic one in Town! They invite very good Artists all
through the year. If you want to go, enter the page tuboleta.com to see the concerts´ programs.
It´s important to buy tickets before getting there in order not to lose the visit. Early you can go there and visit the library. Then you can visit Santa Fé´s Mall,which is quite near, to have lunch or, to buy Colombian Shoes at Vélez or Bon bonite.

at this concert hall. We attended a jazz performance in the small theater so did not experience the main concert hall, but it was good acoustically and we enjoyed listening to Colombian musicians' version of jazz.

The Teatro Mayor and Biblioteca Julio Mario Santo Domingo in Bogota are truly amazing examples of what the wealth of a generous family can do for the public when put to use properly and imaginatively.
Located in the northern part of Bogota, funded by the second richest family in Colombia, the largest library in the country along with a spectacular cutting edge theater utilizing the very latest technologies in lighting and acoustics are very interesting places to visit if you appreciate the arts and architecture.
The theater was closed when I was there, however through the very kind attention of the Jefe de Salas, Sra. Gonzalez, I got to see the majestic 1332 seat theater, with it's infinitely adjustable acoustic panels, naturally lit ceiling ocular and tremendous stage, and the Estudio Theater used for smaller performances with it's custom adjustable floor which allows for a completely flat surface or varied levels for seating/performances. I wish I could have been there for a concert to personally sample what are considered some of the best acoustics achievable in a concert hall.
The public library contains a huge reading room, classrooms where people can come for instruction in multiple interests, a children's library where themes ranging from astronomy to pirates are highlighted over the year. The clever architectural design takes full advantage of natural light wherever possible and all the interiors are bathed in the diffused sun's rays. Even transition areas that normally would not be windowed interestingly use very small clear glass tiles set into the thick concrete walls to provide illumination. With ample automobile parking under the building and with the entire facility being fully handicap accessible, the short trip out from the center of Bogota to visit this attraction is definitely worth it. If you are lucky enough to be able to time it so as to attend a concert or stage production, it is a must.
