A June 2001 trip
to Buenos Aires by DanaR
Quote: Buenos Aires from the vantage point of an an American student, abroad for half of a year. The seemingly lone vegetarian in the land of the meat-eaters, she explores the streets of Buenos Aires.
But the Teatro Colon is not simply a gorgeous building; the opera house still draws the great opera stars and classical musicians. During my six months in Buenos Aires, I saw a fantastic rendition of Puccini's Madame Butterfly, as well as the pianist Bruno Gelber perform with the National Symphony Orchestra. Contrary to what you might have heard, tickets are neither hard to come by nor expensive. You must simply find out when tickets go on sale, and then arrive early and wait in line. The cheapest tickets cost about 15 dollars, and will give you standing room on the top tier. A bit uncomfortable, but amazing, nonetheless.
