Colon Theater ("Teatro Colon", "Columbus Theater"), Buenos Aires
Opened in 1908 after twenty years under construction, the Teatro Colon is one of the world's great opera houses.
Designed in the Italian style, on a scale and with amenities that matched those of grand opera houses in major European capitals, it quickly became a world-famous operatic venue, rivaling La Scala of Milan and the Metropolitan Opera of New York in attracting the best opera singers and conductors.
With excellent acoustics and modern stage areas, the theatre's interior design features rich, elaborate decorations, with frescoes by the renowned 20th century artist Raul Soldi painted in the cupola in 1966 during renovation work.
