The main hall is one of the largest in the world. Divided into seven levels, it has capacity for 2487 seated spectators and reaches the 3000 if the standing ones are included. The stage is one of the largest in Italian horseshoe-shaped theaters.

The best opera house in the world. Not just the acoustic, but the theater itself is amazing. Some singers were afraid of performing there, because spectators will realize how well they did! So, you can imagine how well the sound is :)

The tickets are reasonably priced, so one needs to come to a performance here to see this magnificent classic theater in action. Good sight lines.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
