Teatro Colón 2009 Season

3:25 PM Sandra Gutrejde 1 Comments

The Teatro Colon de Buenos Aires will remain closed for renovations during 2009. However, the program of activities of the theater's companies continues at an alternative venue, the Teatro Coliseo, Marcelo T. de Alvear 1125. Tickets can only be purchased at the theater's box office, 9 am to 5 pm, two days prior to every performance.

I'm republishing this post since there have been some changes to the original schedule. The ballet Don Quixote has been replaced by Giselle.
