Absolutely amazing and most beautiful theater in Bogotá. I wasn't expecting to be impressed by an opera house in Bogotá and boy was I wrong!! Is absolutely impressive on the inside. I was more surprised to know that it stands among the 8 most beautiful opera houses in the world! A must see when in Bogotá!!!

Wonderful iconic place. The theater is totally worth visiting. Located in front of the San Carlos Palace, is one of the most beautiful streets of La Candelaria Neighborhood. The theater is 125 years old, and it has been recently renovated to all of its classic splendor. It usually has a broad program of performances, you can buy tickets on line. When visiting Bogota, this is a Must.

This is one of the oldest theater in Bogota, and once you are inside you can feel the history of it! There are guided visits each Wednesday and Thursday in the afternoon (3PM) and on Saturday as well at noon.

Refurbishment performed on it was worth every single penny. Is a beautiful place

The venue went through a three year restoration where they did a magnificent job not only in the main chamber but the foyer as well. This foyer is specially notable since that's where they hold small, almost personal, concerts including "Colón acústico": free midday concerts. Highly recommend this theater if you have a chance to attend a spectacle, or alternatively to take the tour inside Italian architect Pietro Cantini's national monument: Teatro Colon

Beautiful theatre, great shows, nice service. You feel like in the London of Shakespeare watching a show here. One of our architecture pearls in Bogotá, a place for visiting for sure.
