A LITTLE OF HISTORY. AROUND 1889, THE MAYOR OF THE CITY OF BUENOS AIRES, TORCUATO DE ALVEAR, TOOK THE INITIATIVE AND HELD A PUBLIC TENDER FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE THEATER. IMMEDIATELY, THE ITALIAN MUSICIAN AND OPERA BUSINESSMAN ANGELO FERRARI TRIUMPHS WITH HIS PROPOSAL AND, TOGETHER WITH THE ARCHITECT AND COMPATRIOT FRANCESCO TAMBURINI, THEY START THE PROJECT. THE LATTER DIED IN 1890 AND VITTORIO MEANO CONTINUED THE WORK, INTRODUCING SIGNIFICANT CHANGES. IN 1904, HIS BELGIAN DISCIPLE JULES DORMAL TOOK OVER, WHO CARRIED OUT THE INTERIOR FINISHES AND EXQUISITE ORNAMENTATION. AFTER ALMOST TWENTY YEARS OF CONSTRUCTION, THE BUILDING WAS INAUGURATED ON MAY 25, 1908 WITH THE OPERA AÍDA BY GIUSEPPE VERDI.

AN ARCHITECTURAL GEM. VERY DISSIMILAR STYLES COME TOGETHER HARMONIOUSLY IN ITS DESIGN: THE GREEK ATTIC THAT PREDOMINATES ABROAD, THE ITALIAN RENAISSANCE, THE VARIETY OF ORNAMENTATION OF FRENCH ARCHITECTURE AND THE SOLIDITY AND DISTRIBUTION TYPICAL OF GERMAN ART. REGARDING ITS SIZE, THE BUILDING OCCUPIES 8,200 M² AND THE SURFACE IS 58,000 M². THE ROOM HAS A CAPACITY FOR 2,487 SEATED SPECTATORS, DIVIDED INTO SEVEN LEVELS. AROUND THE ROOM, THE ENTRANCE HALL (FOYER), THE GOLDEN HALL, THE HALL OF BUSTS, THE WHITE HALL AND THE MUSEUM ARE LOCATED, WHICH TREASURES THE COSTUMES USED BY SOME OF THE CELEBRITIES WHO PASSED THROUGH ITS STAGE. UNLIKE OTHER THEATERS IN THE WORLD, THE COLÓN HAS EXTRAORDINARY DEPENDENCIES SUCH AS THE SUPERIOR INSTITUTE OF ART, THE CENTER FOR MUSICAL EXPERIMENTATION, THE LIBRARY AND THE WORKSHOPS, WHERE ALL THE PRODUCTION FOR THE STAGING IS CARRIED OUT. THE THEATER OFFERS GUIDED TOURS TO EXPERIENCE THE COLÓN BEHIND THE SCENES AND GET CLOSER TO THE MAGIC OF ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT STAGES IN THE WORLD.
