Buenos Aires Highlight: Teatro Colon

Feast your eyes and ears at the Teatro Colon

A prime example of European architectural influence in Buenos Aires, the splendid Teatro Colon is considered to be among the five best concert venues in the world and was ranked the third best opera house in the world by National Geographic. Having undergone an extensive refurbishment, the grandiose opera house boasts a stunning interior with painted ceilings and dazzling gold balconies. The auditorium is horse-shoe shaped and seats 2,500 people. The astonishing opera house is particularly famous for its perfect acoustics, so good that they make the performance delightful no matter where you are sitting. The impressive seven-story building holds shows for ballet, opera and classical music and has become one of Buenos Aires’ most prominent landmarks. Tickets can be purchased online or at the ticket office. The theater also organizes a free concert one Sunday every month at 11am, for which you can buy tickets the Saturday before. Make sure you wake up early to queue for the best seats! If you are unable to see a concert, catch one of the frequent 50 minute backstage tours to gaze at the astounding interior. Tours in English are available. See more of our favorite experiences in Buenos Aires…
