We saw this building from the outside while on a walking tour of Rio and it is quite magnificent - a little taste of Europe in the heart of Downtown Rio. Wished we had time for a tour of the interior as well!

We took a private tour of Rio and stopped here for photo as my wife is an opera fan. The neighborhood is vert congested and we only stayed here briefly. The front of the building probably has gone through a makeover recently, all the gold...More

This is one of the most ornate buildings I have ever seen. I was told that the interior is patterned after the Paris opera.

In 2017 I've been first in Paris and later in Rio. This theatre is really similar to the one in Paris (Opera Garnier). Personally I like more the outside from this one than in Paris. For the inside it's the other way around.

I girlfriend and I did the English tour that starts at 2 PM. It cost 30 and 15 for students and is worth it. Beautiful theater with beautiful surroundings. We didn’t have time or chance to see a performance because it was during off-season.

As far as I understand, it is not necessary to pre-book, however, it is prudent to arrive at least 30 minutes before.

My advice would be to wait till closer to the time and then ask. It is a small theatre, but if you go there when you first arrive in Manaus, you should be able to get tickets to something during the time you are there. You... More
