The best place to see a performance in the city is Teatro Colón, one of the grandest venues in the world both for its opulent décor and acoustics. The opera house is so stunning it is worth even just a daytime tour or visit, and its programming includes some of the worlds’ top productions, including touring musical performances, operas and ballets. 

Buenos Aires also is a South American and—even greater—Latin American hub for theater. Musicals, dramas, variety shows and everything in between go up on Corrientes avenue, which is dubbed the “Broadway” of South America. While Teatro Colón stages more classic productions, Corrientes is where to go to see the best contemporary theater.
