Located one block from the cathedral, Teatro Macedonia is a small concert hall that's as fine and ornate as any you'll find in Europe. If a concert or show is scheduled during your stay in Oaxaca by all means buy a ticket and go. There...More

This lovely theatre dates from the early 1900s. Good views no matter where you are seated. A varied program of music and shows but dont miss the Oaxaca symphony orchestra if they are playing!

Home to the Oaxaca Symphony Orchestra, this theater is one of a kind, it used to be a casino, and it's architecture is amazing. If you like classical music you should visit, free concerts by Oaxaca Symphony are on fridays at 8pm.

We check the Oaxaca Calendar and Que Pasa Oaxaca on line to see what films, concert or dance performances are scheduled in the theater. Many events are free or low cost. The extravagantly painted ceiling, with scantily clad floating beauties, is a delight, as are...More

It seems the schedule to see the interior is picked every day. I was there twice, different schedules each time. Could not visit the interior. The Tourism Ministry should see into these!

Built in the turn of the 19th to 20th century this theater has a parisian style. Inside is even more remarkable with a beautiful stairwell. Take a look inside.
