“Um ótimo local para apreciadores do Ballet ,Ópera e de Música”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Sou frequentadora assídua do Theatro Municipal e posso dizer que ele não deixa nada à dever em comparação ao de outros países. Ótima acústica , confortável e em Agosto tivemos o prazer de assistir Onegin com Thiago Soares , brasileiro , Primeiro Bailarino do Royal Ballet e nossa Bailarina Ícone , Ana Botafogo.
Recomendo à todos os turistas que assistam à um espetáculo neste conceituado teatro. Comprando o ingresso direto na bilheteria se consegue bons preços . Os melhores lugares são na parte central do Balcão Nobre , pois na platéia não tem bom grau de inclinação para as filas de trás.
I'm assiduous frequenter of the Theatro Municipal and I can say that it is as good as those of other countries. Great acoustics, comfortable and beautifull. In last August we had the pleasure of watching Onegin ,with Thiago Soares, Brazilian, First Dancer of the Royal Ballet and ,Icon of Brazil, ballerina Ana Botafogo.
I recommend to all tourists watch a show at this prestigious theater. Buying direct at the box office you can get good prices. The best places are in the central part of the First Balcony( Noble) because the seats in the orchestra audience has no degree to allow good vision in the back rows

“Worth a tour when it is raining! Go 30mins before you want to go in!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Paid a visit on a wet and wind day in Rio!  They have guided tours during the day for R$10. Confusing system to get in though- you have to get a token from the guy in black on the door and then go to the box office to buy the ticket-BUT they only have a limited # of tickets per visit and they only start handing the tokens out 30mins before the start of the tour! Once inside the guide said she would not speak the whole tour in English (it was given in Portuguese) but she did answer my many questions. Very beautiful interior around the actual theatre- which unfortunately we only got to 'see' in the dark as they were sorting the lighting out for the weekend show! Worth a visit when it rains!!

“Culture, art and a time warp to the days of the Empire in Rio de Janeiro”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

For those who like music and architecture must see this site. Witness the symphony Brazilian ($ 10.00 per person) celebrating 100 years of the great Brazilian maestro Eleazar de Carvalho but also has the osquestra Petrobras and other shows. The French style architecture lends an air of nineteenth century cool.
good acoustics. Buy your ticket online (ingresso.com). This all night but it is worth a day trip to enjoy the sunshine outside the restoration done. Pure culture. After or before .. you can have a beer at the bar yellowing of Cinelândia.

“be warned”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

some wonderful concerts but be warned: ice cold inside !! since being refurbished, they can't seem to run the air con. on any temperature except ICE -- artisits complain and some (singers mostly) have it turned off -- and still nothing gets done -- if you want to pay R$ 450 for an orchestra seat and get sick, this is the place for you -- real shame as it's such a beautiful building........

The Teatro Municipal of Rio de Janeiro is beautiful. I have had the opportunity to do the tour, very comprehensive and well explained, you can perform seasonal income paying very cheap. Lovers of the arts will enjoy this ride
