Teatro Colon is one of the world’s great opera houses. Tickets for performances featuring well-known artists are difficult to come by, unless you have a top-notch concierge at a five-star hotel. For other performances, especially the ballet, you could have a chance to snag the cheap seats. There aren’t any performances during the summer (January, February). A tour is offered on most days except for Sunday and in January. It is worthwhile, costs only $5, $3 for students, and is available in Spanish and English. Usually it includes an interesting visit backstage and to the workshops, but often depends on what work is being done. Please note that the tour entrance is on the Viamonte side of the building and tickets for performances are sold on the Tucuman side.
