Teatro Colón guided tour tickets

The Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires is considered one of the five best opera houses in the world. This is due to two fundamental elements: its excellent acoustic design and its high architectural level.

This place was originally intended as an exclusive theater for opera, although today symphony concerts and classical dance are also exhibited.

As an institution, the theater had operated in another location in the Plaza de Mayo since 1857, until it moved to its current location, inaugurated on May 25, 1908, after 20 years of construction.

The history of the Teatro Colón

Teatro colón guided tour tickets

Initially, the design of the Teatro Colón was entrusted to the Italian architect Francesco Tamburini (1846-1891), who since 1884 served as general director of architecture for Argentina.

Although he designed the project, his early death prevented him from starting construction, so the architect Vittorio Meano (1860-1904) was hired. However, this one also dies a few years before its conclusion. The work must be adapted and completed by the architect Jules Dormal (1846-1924).

After almost twenty years of construction, which began in 1889, the theater opened its doors on May 24, 1908. The agenda was marked by the performance of the opera Aida, by Giuseppe Verdi.

The theater as an institution houses several stable artistic groups, whose foundation dates back to the mid-1920s.

During Peronism, the Teatro Colón opened its programming to popular music. Once the Perón government ended, the theater returned to its initial purpose.

Since its opening, this theater has become the stage for important international artists such as Richard Strauss, Igor Stravinsky, Camille Saint-Saëns, Manuel de Falla, Maria Callas, Plácido Domingo and the Argentines Daniel Barenboim and Astor Piazzolla.
