“Enjoy luxury art”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I'm not a snob, I really like classical music and opera. Do you like it too? Then Teatro Municipal is a great place for you to go to spend free time. Though tickets are quite expensive! Seats in Galeria was my solution. The only thing you need to do - to come one hour before performance starts to take a seat in a first line at Galeria. But it's worth it!

“Nice theatre,if the show is good,it's worth a visit”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

A modern facility of medium size.I am not fond of long sweeping auditoriums, I prefer the intimacy of 1 balcony houses,but this house isn't bad.They spent way too much money backstage for equipment you may use once every 5 years, but that is the nature of publicly funded buildings.Nice dressing rooms, good lobby space,and access to parking.

“Beautifull”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

This is one of the most beautifull buildings from downtown Santiago. The paintings on the roof and the architecture were astonishing. If you go to Santiago, this is a must.

“Not so much a review, but help buying tickets to Teatro Muncipal”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

I am travelling to Santiago at the end of the year and have tried repeatedly to buy tickets online for one of the shows at the Teatro - I set up an account, and can choose seats, etc, but it refuses to take any of my credit cards. I can't contact them via email as the enquiry form requires an RUT number (some government ID number) and calling them brings nothing.... any clues?

“Beautiful place; not so smart at arranging choirs”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

The place is outsandingly beautiful. It's been well kept.

We went to see the Carmina Burana. I was dissappointed. Why would you put the choir at the back of the stage and not the front? You could not appreciate the sound nor the inflections provided by the vocals. Instead, the focus was on the orchestra, with his not-Chilean Director, who seriously attempted to steal the show from the choir. It was funny at best and disrespectful at worst.

Still, the place is great.
