    Superb is the 100+ year-old Teatro Colón or the 'jewel in the crown' of Buenos Aires, one of the most famous opera houses in the world. A must is the guided tour!.. A breathtaking experience!..

    One of the Argentine national glory and pride. Guided tour, with multi-tier pricing, is highly recommended. Grab free entrance on Friday from 10:00 for Argentine performance on Sunday morning.

    Incredible theatre- The tour was great, lots of interesting information, and you get to see a great deal of the theatre without seeing a show there.

    I had a free ticket for the Filarmonica rehersal today. It's a nice way to see the beautiful theatre from inside if you don't have money for a show.

    Very nice theatre, but if you have visited European opera houses you won't be too impressed. Nevertheless worth the visit!

    This place is spectacular, truly a must-see at least for a tour but ideally a show. For shows, though, spend the extra money on GOOD seats. It is infinitely worth it for the best views and comfort.

    Be sure and get here early for same day tour tickets. They sell out quick. The tour is about 1 hour. Tours are offered in English or Spanish.

    Get tickets to an opera or Ballett for really cheap (5€). Not the best seats but well worth it too experience the theatre.

    Champagne bar is only on the 1st floor. If you are seating in parterre - on the ground floor they serve only overpriced nespresso. Take the stairs 1 floor up for wine and champagne!

    Absolutely stunning theatre. Try and splash out for the expensive sets because you can't quite see the stage from the top tier of the theatre.

    Worth the visit either when there's a performance or with the guided tour, beautiful decorations and architecture!

    The theatre is very tall with 6 stories, so dont get stuck at the top where acoustics aren't as good. The interior itself wasn't impressive, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Tchaikovsky symphonies

    Avoid seats to the side in the front (2 if poss) rows of the upper levels. When sat back in your seat you can see almost nothing of the stage. Leaning forward throughout the performance is painful

    Cough up the required amount of bucks and see an opera at the Colón Theatre. You will have no regrets whatsoever, unless your opera taste has been poorly bred.

    Swan Lake was awesome! The building has nothing to envy from Versailles or the Opera Garnier.

    Take a tour of the Teatro Colon when you visit Buenos Aires. The "backstage" tour is incredible!

    The acoustics are considered one of the best five in the world. Get a ticket to "palcos" avoid "terturia", "galeria" and "paraiso"
