“A must-see attraction”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Anyone who is visiting the city and loves art should pay a visit to this beautifully designed building in the heart of old São Paulo, especially if the city's symphony orquestra or the lyric choir is to perform. During daytime, the theater is easily accessible by subway (Anhangabaú Station). At night, however, it is advisable to go by car, for the surroundings are not so much friendly. The admission fee varies according to the location of the seats and the cheapest are the ones called "anfiteatro" (amphitheater). Needless to say, the view is not that good, but it's still worth it.

“Too bad they have not renovated”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

this buidling on the outside. It's great architecture, like so much in the old part of town, but everything is so run down here now. Must have been a great site 50-80 years ago!

“Perfection in every detail”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Teatro Municipal has been a kind of a "hideout" for me in many occasions, 20 years ago, when I was a student at a law college nearby. I consider myself one of the luckiest people to having had the opportunity to listen to good music during lunch time when all around the Theatre was at the hetic pace of São Paulo downtown area! Still love it and it is a must in São Paulo
