Municipal Theatre of São Paulo is a theatre in São Paulo, Brazil. It is regarded as one of the landmarks of the city, significant both for its architectural value as well as for its historical importance, having been the venue for the Week of Modern Art in 1922, which revolutionised the arts in Brazil. The building now houses the São Paulo Municipal Symphonic Orchestra, the Coral Lírico (Lyric Choir) and the City Ballet of São Paulo.
Gorgeous building with lovely shows, HOWEVER, the location is in a very dangerous and bum-infested area...all the parking around the building is 30 reis...and staff put lasers in your face if you're phone light shows at all...also, if you sit upstairs in the gallery/balcony- you'll want your money back. You won't be able to see all the stage or orchestra! Many people were complaining about not being able to see anything (people were standing to watch! and the chairs are so creaky) so after intermission, half of the audience upstairs left. What a shame. At least we saw the beautiful chandelier lol I only suggest visiting here if you have an uber and good seats.
What a city huh? Well this spot is the special one cause it sports the old parts of the city. Some buildings have lights for decoration, the people arround including the Hobos is what makes this part of the city alive and what it is. If you go here, just watch your back and be smart. Its beautifull and good at night, but also has its shares of bad guys and looters
One of the best places to visit in São Paulo. The guided tour is offered in Portuguese and English. It gives you insight into the city history and development.
Very beautiful building. There is guided tour in English and in Portuguese which lasted for about 1.5 hour. When we visited in April, the inside theater section (stage & seating) was closed and we could only visit the halls. So we felt the tour was a bit too long for it's worth. It's a nice visit, nonetheless.
It's a really beautiful place, where I had one of the most experience of my life.
Beautiful architecture. If you're not into this kind of theaters, you will feel like being in a place in the past or in Europe... Great musical and arts performance in general. Definitely a must go in São Paulo.
Beautiful building inside and out. Free admission in both English and Portuguese.
The tour is excellent. Very interesting. Our tour guide Julia was very knowledgeable. Muito obrigado. Highly recommended
Gorgeous building with a very interesting history!! However we turned up for the free English tour which is meant to be on Friday's at 11am but they decided they weren't doing one that day... and we had a group of 9 who had planned to go especially. They said next time we should have called in advance, so that would be my tip! Also when they have rehearsals on it's not possible to view the auditorium. Lunch at the restaurant downstairs was delicious, a very generous banquet of traditional Brazilian food with a surprise opera performance in the entrance of the theatro - quite the treat :)
