Teatro Amazonas

Highly recommended
Such was the extent of the rubber barons' grand ambitions that they decided to build a replica of Paris' Opera Garnier in the middle of the Amazon! When it was inaugurated in 1896, the Teatro Amazonas became the town's symbol, and a highly visible one at that, with its pink façade and cupola composed of 36 000 varnished tiles representing the Brazilian flag. Every year, in April-May, it hosts a large opera festival, and the Amazonian symphony orchestra plays every week. Come and see a show and take in the sumptuous interior at the same time!
