    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.

    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.

    Don't book off TripAdvisor! It's better to book directly off of the website or purchase at the door. I ended up booking through TripAdvisor and it ended up being a scam as I never received tickets. If you search on the main... More
