One of the most important opera houses in the world, the Teatro Colón is famous for the quality of its acoustics and its outstanding architectural splendour.
Since its first function on May 25, 1908, the theatre has hosted some of the world's best conductors, dancers and singers, including Igor Stravinsky, Herbert von Karajan, Daniel Barenboim, Luciano Pavarotti, Martha Argerich, Plácido Domingo, Julio Bocca and Maximiliano Guerra.
Trivia:Don't forget to look up! The theatre's 318m² dome was painted by Raúl Soldi. The chandalier that hangs from it measures seven metres and contains 700 bulbs.
