Buenos Aires
One of the world's great theatres.

Teatro Colón (Colón Theatre) was inaugurated in 1908 with a performance of the opera Aïda by Guiseppe Verdi. The deaths of the two first architects charged with construction meant that the project finally went to the Belgian architect Jules Dormal, who introduced French stylistic elements to the design.

The building covers a surface area of 58,000 sqm. The main theatre, in the form of a horseshoe with the great dome decorated with paintings by Raúl Soldi, can accommodate more than 2,500 spectators and an orchestra of up 120 musicians. The Teatro Colón boasts some of the best acoustics in the world.
