Theatro Municipal de Rio

Highly recommended
It is no coincidence if the Theatro Municipal reminds you of Paris' Opera Garnier. The architects took inspiration from the French Opera House and had all the materials needed for its construction imported from Europe in 1905. The opening was even held on Bastille Day! The guided tour will acquaint you with the remarkable decor of the auditorium, the staircase, the vestibule and even the basement. And why not enjoy a show in the company of over 2 000 spectators?
