Great for Verdi and Rossini, but very weak in Wagner and Strauss. Yes, it is one of the top 5, but don't think deserves the first place

Comments:
Large productions, great musical director; the theatre building itself is quite unremarkable, without history, and the audience can comprise quite many tourists who'll clap randomly throughout the shows.

Comments:
The Teatro Colón (Spanish) (Columbus Theatre) is the main opera house in Buenos Aires, Argentina, acousticly considered to be amongst the five best concert venues in the world. The present Colón replaced an original theatre which opened in 1857. Towards the end of the century it became clear that a new theatre was needed and, after a 20-year process, the present theatre opened on the 25 May 1908 with Verdi's Aïda.

I have been in Vienna, LaScala, Paris, Metropolitan, Bolshoy and Mariinski listed above. None of them is the most beautiful. The best is Odessa Opera House in Ukraine, build at the end of 19Th Century. Check its Web Site and add to position one.

Teatro Real Report Abuse
Madrid. Spain's top opera house (together with Barcelona's Liceu). Terrific and varied season, and leaded by G. Mortier (former artistic director of the Salzburg Festival).
