Visit: Teatro Colon, Calle Cerrito 628, Buenos Aires C1010AAN Argentina
The Colón operated in its first venue from 1857 until 1888, after which the building was closed for the construction of a new house. The new improved house opened on May 25th 1908 with a performance of Aïda.
Throughout the history of the theatre, no artist of importance of the 20th century has failed to appear on its stage. It's enough to mention singers such as Maria Callas, Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti, dancers such as Vaslav Nijinski, Mijail Barishnikov, among dozens of others.
Finally, as of the year 2010, the Teatro Colón boasts a building restored to all its original glory, giving an air of distinction to its productions.
All these reasons are what make the Colón Theater a pride of the Argentinian culture and a standard for opera, ballet and classical music across the world.

We were so impressed by Teatro Colon....it is breathtakingly beautiful. Our guide was very informative about the building and its' history. To our delight, we were even able to enter the dignitaries' box for 10 mins or so to hear a trio performing Brahms concerto in C minor, so able to evaluate the famed acoustics for ourselves. Our tour timing during a performance was a chance bonus. What a thrill!
O teatro é lindo, maravilhoso, excedeu minhas expectativas. Ainda tive a chance de assistir um pedacinho da apresentação da Orquestra. Eu sugeriria que eles fizessem apresentação após o horário da visita ao teatro, deixando como opção comprar o ingresso apenas para a vista ou também para a apresentação da Orquestra. Eu teria ficado com esta última opção - compraria o ingresso duplo.
You can buy tickets at the opera house for much less. This is not a private tour but the tour the opera house provides. I was lead to believe a guide would meet us there. No one showed and we almost missed the tour. The only thing this does is assure that you have tickets if the tour is sold out.
The opera house tour was very good but not worth the extra price charged here.
