Theatres in Buenos Aires

The main theatre of Argentina is the Colon Theatre, which was built back in 1908. This is South America's largest opera and ballet stage, on which world-famous performers acted. The theatre’s opening, intended to become a new symbol of Buenos Aires, was celebrated with the premiere of "Aida".

Today, the theatre building has seven floors, and the auditorium can accommodate 2,500 spectators (another 1,000 standing places are provided therein). The auditorium’s interior is luxurious and impressive: gilding and purple velvet. Also, the theatre has its workshops, where they create the scenery for performances and sew costumes. The rehearsal halls and wardrobes are located under the huge stage.

The last restoration occurred at the Colon Theater in 2006; 4 years later, in 2010, the renovated theatre invited the audience again.
