- Teatro ColÃ³n
On April 27th , 1857 the Teatro
ColÃ³n was opened to the public and designed to hold 2,500 people.
For over 30 years the opera house was a hit, showing important
performers such as Tamberlick, Giuseppe Cima, SofÃa Vera-Lorini,
Giuseppina Medori, Federico Nicolao and many more. It was the only
building in Argentina built with iron struts and frames and also had
the largest state built then until the theatre had to close in 1888.
After many architects, the building begun to be built in 1889 but
wasn't complete for about another 20 years later when Jules Dormal
took over. The Building has several entrances and 8 different
areas or rooms in the building that each have their own unique look.
From out side the building you can see the beautiful architecture
that has lasted through time. Today the Opera house regularly holds
many concerts, ballets, and opera performances.
