The Teatro Colón is the main opera house in Buenos Aires, worldwide known as one of the best concert venues in the world. It’s definitely the crown jewel of the city and the finest theater of The Americas. In fact, National Geographic, the Acoustical Society of America and many prestigious musicians agree: The Teatro Colón ranks among the few with the best acoustics in the whole world.
At the beginning of the 1900s Buenos Aires has a thriving economy and its leaders made of it a city where culture flourished. The Teatro Colón is the standing memory of this period in the Argentinian history. Its classic horse-shoe auditorium is today the largest one of its type, making any European opera house look tiny before its imposing presence. Yet, despite its sumptuosity, the Teatro Colón has such an elegance that keeps it away from the obscene exuberance other concert venues display. In this place splendor and simplicity are in perfect balance.
