“Superb building from Argentina's heyday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

The building is an opulent and well maintained reminder of the days when Argentina was one of the richest countries on earth. Its history is remarkable, especially for fans of opera, as the main hall is reputed to have some of the best acoustics going.

“Great Experience to Visit Such a Beautiful Building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

If in Buenos Aires this beautiful, historical building is a must see. As they say, buildings are not built this way anymore. Make sure to bring your camera.

“Just beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

We didn't have the opportunity to go to a performance, so we decided to take the tour. The theater is gorgeous, and our guide was very good. It was most interesting to get the history, including the recent renovation.

“Wow factor ....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

This was the highlight of our time in Buenos Aires. The outside is pleasant but it is nothing compared to the inside. It was amazing to take the guided tour. They do these in many languages and it is so worth doing. The seating, the beautiful french architecture and furniture. This is a must seen place spend time after in the coffee shop to enjoy more of the feel. Leave a few hours to enjoy this amazing place.

“Try and fit in a concert or opera.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

I did not manage to be there for the music, but the guided tour during the day is worth doing (110 pesos for non-Argentines). described by Pavarotti as the world´s best opera house it is stunning both inside and out. Redolent of the Belle Epoque (circa 1910).
