    Must-see opera house in Montevideo
    We saw a production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni at Teatro Solís. Because of a strike, opening night was cancelled and instead they offered their dress rehearsal on the opening night date free and open to the public. The performance was superb. The singers and orchestra were perfect. The costuming and sets, which were contemporary, modular and used projections, were interesting. I think I might have preferred more traditional settings and costumes, however, overall it was a great performance. The theater itself, built in 1856, is very much like the opera houses in Europe, beautiful and elegant. Entrance to the art exhibit in the basement gallery is free and open to the public.

    Wonderful old theatre!
    Several days after Carnival ended, Carnival performers put on a closed-door performance for our cruise line Azamara (Amazing Evening). This theater is special and the performance was very memorable. The performers and venue were excellent! Bravo.

    Conducted tour was excellent
    We went not for a performance but the 4pm tour which is conducted in several languages, just 150U pesos each. To our surprise each language group has their own guide, our English tour was just us two. And what an excellent guide we had, a young man but unfortunately I don't recall his name. Very informative and entertaining we had good chats. The theatre is very attractive. Not as large or extravagantly decorated as Buenos Aires but nevertheless very nice indeed and perhaps better for shows being more intimate. To hear about the history and see the main hall and particularly the theater itself was wonderful.

Lovely theatre showing a variety of performances. You can also have a guided tour. Several languages offered. One of my favourite places in Montevideo.

We tried to get a tour of the theatre when we were there, but they were not open, so we just viewed the outside. Based on Google Images, the interior looks very nice and worth touring. The outside is rather plain. This would be another site you can see easily get to from the cruise port.

This was probably the highlight of our city tour. For the most part we saw buildings that were in a poor state of repair and areas that needed a lot of regeneration. The theatre stands out as it is so beautiful, not quite expected in its location. I understand there is a tour inside but we didn’t have the time to take it, such a pity.

Would suggest to arrive early to book tours. There was a long line ahead of us but they were able to accommodate everyone. Tour times vary depending on the month so check their website which has accurate information. Cost is 90 Uruguayan pesos or about $3 USD, payable only in cash and pesos. Tours are in Spanish, Portuguese and English. Guide spoke English well. There were only four people on the English tour. Guided tour is one hour.
