What a sensational building with such a historic past. Visited while on a cruise stopping at Manaus and was, for me, the highlight of the trip. The building has been beautifully restored in 1996 and displays all the elegance as when it opened in 1896. Make sure you go inside and visit the auditorium, it will surprise and amaze you.... More

The theatre was a bit of a mission to get to from the Port but it is nice. Beware that the streets aren't overwhelmingly beautiful and most buildings aren't a sight to see. But if you have a passion for exploring regardless this is worth trekking for.

This is the main attraction in this bustling and sweaty city. It sits on a raised position in the city centre. It is built along classical European opera house lines, with opulent fixtures and fittings, all built from materials imported from Europe at the height of the local rubber boom. Tours of the building run regularly and it is well... More

A place worth seeing! Walk in the main floor to see tapestry behind stage, then go upstairs to view from one of the box seats. On the second floor be sure to see the Legolas model of the opera house with 30,000 logos. See the statue in the plaza in front.

Superb experience, privilege to be in such a historic building & enjoy performance. Our visit to Manaus was short but memorable. We thoroughly enjoyed learning about the history & culture that has been preserved and how it is a significant achievement for a city in such a remote place. Thank you

The amazon theatre (opera house) is an impressive building, the inside is fantastic when you consider that the materials were brought from Europe. It does not take too long to see it all but is a must if visiting Manaus.

Very well preserved. You get a nice taste of colonial upper class Manaus entertainment. Boxes open for a visit. Some interesting stuff in the gift shop. In the heart of the old city.

Our main reason for going to Manaus was to see the Teatro Amazonas and it certainly did not disappoint us. Unfortunately, here are no performances during the Christmas period but that only means that we will have to return to see a live performance. As it was, we settled for the second best and that was to take the tour... More

More than the theater and its history the square is very nice not only to be able to eat and to watch the sunset. If you have the opportunity to get to know the theater, it is also interesting to think that it is a travesty (all the material came from France including the technicians for its assembly)
