The Theatro Municipal ("Municipal Theater") is an opera house in the Centro district of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Built in the early the twentieth century, it is considered to be one of the most beautiful and important theaters in the country.
The building is designed in an eclectic style, inspired by the Paris Opéra of Charles Garnier. The outside walls are inscribed with the names of classic European & Brazilian artists. It is located near the National Library and the National Fine Arts Museum, overlooking the spacious Cinelândia Square.

Beautiful building. Tour was good but mainly focused on art rather than the theatre and how productions are put together

We did an English tour, however the guid did NOT spoke English. Most confusing tour ever! The theatre is really nice though.

Best place in Rio. I love the arquitecture and everything in that place. If you come to Rio is a must go preferably during any opera, concert or symphonic orchestra events. Take the time to observe every detail in the theater, you will get amused.

Great cultural place! It's season is usually awesome: orchestra, classical music in general, musicals, dancing. Great agendas in general! Has this classical architecture, looks really beautiful. Anyone should check. There are Sunday's shows as cheap as 1$

It is beautiful! It was built in the beginning of XX century, when cityhall was destroying tenements, poor people's houses and African American neighborhoods in order of enlarging the street. It has a lot of French influence. It has a nice tour inside. It worth a visit. #Historytour
