This is an old (+150 years) but recently restored opera house that also shows dance, concerts (even pop/modern music) and non-classical performances in general. We went there to see a contemporary Brazilian dance company -nothing to remember at all, but still worth the visit as both the main theatre and the "modern" areas are very nice to see.

The facility is wonderful--good restaurants inside. Performances in Spanish, but worth a visit just to see the beautiful lobbies.

Beautiful theater. Very interesting guided tour. Tour includes a bit of the city history and a small music exibition.

It has been beautifully restored. Tiny but quite nice, and there are few pretty buildings in this city, particularly in good shape. If you are not going inside, i would not make a special trip. And if you can see a show, dance, or orchestra, don't miss it. Worth it.

We'd liked to have reviewed this theatre but as we only had one day in Montevideo and they only offered two tours we weren't able to. They wouldn't even let us have a peek at the auditorium and we're never likely to return. Rule number one - if you want visitors and to generate revenue, you have to offer more tours. Look at the Teatro Colon in BA and learn from them.
