This year the Theater is also celebrating the 100th anniversary of birth of Alberto Ginastera, one of the greatest Argentine composers.

The good news of the 2016 season is that it starts on February 14th, with the Summer Festival, that will feature some free, open air performances at Plaza del Vaticano, located next to Teatro Colon, on Cerrito & Viamonte.

  1. Hi! Can I ask a question? Maybe you understand how this works better than me. I want to buy tickets for the already programmed 2016 concerts of Renee Fleming and Kauffman (green Abono). But there is no where on the site to buy them nor can I find a date for when they go on sale. Do you have any idea if they are on sale already and if not how I will find out when they do?

    1. Hi Jacqueline. They haven´t announced the date when the Green Abono will go on sale. At the theater´s box office they said this Abono will go on sale after February 23rd, but there´s no specific date yet. The Abonos can only be purchased at the box only. Otherwise you´ll have to wait until the individual dates go on sale online, if there are seats left available.
      I hope this helps. For any other questions please send me an email: sandra@batravelguide.com
