Today the kids and I decided to explore a little more of what this great city offers…arts and music.
So we visited the number 1 opera teatro in the world…Teatro Colon.
It’s located in the centro of Buenos Aires and any taxi or uber (my choice is uber) can get you there easily.
Prices are reasonable and really worth the guided tour. Foreigners pay 200 pesos and citizens of Argentina pays 80 pesos.
And we bought our guided tour ticket the day before. The tours are timed so be aware of that. And they have spanish tour and english tour.
This place is absolutely magnificent with history that I had not idea and sounds of songs that I know but had no idea it’s call opera songs.
The Teatro Colon was built in 1908 and it took 18yrs to finish the building and open it for events.
The most expensive tickets cost $260 per person and that’s for the best seats apart from the presidential seats next to the stage. And then you can get the cheapest ticket for $20 but that’s like being in a hencoop and you just standing. They have 1 opera event and 1 ballet event once a 1 month. And they have free admission to the Teatro Colon one sunday of every month. And also you can see the rehearsals of the Opera and ballet on Sundays at 11am.
The tour took about 50min just in a moment of gratitude seeing such amazing decor and elegance of this building.
Here are a few shots of our tour
That’s the red carpet entrance…it’s grand…
It’s one of the Opera houses that makes all their clothing for the performance
Check out those lights….
Red carpet all the way
They allow as to sit in the booth of the dignitaries. Which usually cost $260 per seat. And that’s the stage yoy see there.
What a world filled with creativity.
