We live in New York City and I love to go inside theaters, opera halls, etc. We did an English speaking tour of Teatro Colon and I am so glad we did. The theater is magnificent with such interesting decor and architecture. Definitely check it out!

Hadn't heard too much about this before arriving in Buenos Aires but as it was close and we were in time for a tour we decided to do it. The restoration of the original interior and ornate features are stunning. I could not stop looking in awe at the beauty and the lavishness of the surroundings. I must have taken hundreds of photos and I dawdled so much as my eyes could just not get enough of the splendour. My friend whom I was with had visited the opera house in Vienna and she said the magnificence of the Teatro Colon far exceeded that. We were so lucky to time our tour with a orchestral rehearsal for Carmen. It's hard to articulate how brilliant it was sitting in the President's box listening to the amazing acoustics.

We attended a symphony event at Teatro Colon. The theater is stunning and its reputation for acoustical perfection is well deserved. We had seats and a tier halfway up and it sounded as if we had first row orchestra seats. The only trouble is that buying tickets on their website isn't intuitive.

Amazing acoustics, over-the-top ornamentation, and a wonderful tour from guide Mariel, who really gave the tour a lot of flair.

Staggeringly ornate architecture, beautiful acoustic, very knowledgeable English-speaking tour. Performances are mostly opera and ballet, rarely theatre. Lower prices on Mondays, returned tickets available.
