  3. Antonio, tickets for the individual dates at Teatro Colon go on sale only a few days before the start of each performance. So keep checking regularly in the upcoming months for any news.

    Any idea how to find out which Sunday of each month are the free concerts? I can't find this information on the Teatro's website.
