About these ratings

This opulent opera house is as pleasing to the eyes as its performances are to the ears. Inside this grandiose space, you'll behold European-style décor ranging from Italian-marble staircases and Venetian mosaics to French stained glass and a gleaming grand chandelier. And in case you're not awed by spectacular architecture and design, the theater has welcomed a slew of world-class artists, including Richard Strauss, Igor Stravinsky, and Luciano Pavarotti. Visit between April and December to catch one of the theater's spectacular ballet or opera performances.

Recent visitors recommend splurging for an event on the Colón's majestic stage. One TripAdvisor user raves, "What a place […] Go to the trouble of seeing a performance if you can rather than just doing the guided tour."

The Colón Theater is located in Centro several blocks north of Plaza del Mayo. You can reach the theater via the subte Line D line to the Tribunales station. The theater is open every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Every hour between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., guided tours in English are offered for 110 ARS (about $25 USD); foreign currency is not accepted. The ticket office is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Ticket prices vary. For further details, check out the theater's official website.
