The Teatro Colón is the leading opera house in Buenos Aires, as well as an architectural landmark, known for its remarkably restored 19th-century interiors. On this 1-hour guided tour, explore inside the legendary theater; see the magnificent Golden Hall, the Gallery of Busts, and the Main Foyer; and hear how iconic singers such as Maria Callas, Plácido Domingo, and Luciano Pavarotti have performed on its stage.
What to Expect
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.

You can't miss the opportunity to take this guided tour inside the spectacular venue. Once inside the theater, exchange you ticket with your tour guide and join a small group of visitors to go behind the scenes of the Colon. You will be able to visit the Hall, the Main Foyer, the Gallery of Busts and the Golden Hall. Finish the tour inside the magnificent theater, visiting the stalls and the ground floor.

You won't forget this 50-minutes tour through the secrets and details of this world renown venue.

Important Information: You will receive the Teatro Colon ticket on your email after confirming your booking. Teatro Colon will not accept your Viator-TripAdvisor voucher, an email will be sent to you with the attraction ticket as an attachment.

One of the Grand Old Opera Houses

Well worth the visit. I had one of the English speaking guided tours and the young lady who gave us the tour was very easy to understand and did a remarkable job.

The Opera House is gorgeous and much larger than I expected. There are seven levels of seating, including the floor, all in a horseshoe design. We entered from the back to have a sweeping view of the entire theater and then got to sit in...More
