Theatro Municipal - Review
Yet another masterpiece of the city that is Sao Paulo, the Theatro Municipal is considered to be one of the grade edifices. Built in the early 1900's the theatre is said to have been inspired by the Paris Opera and till date hosts many a shows that continue to attract droves of crowd. The city's most splendid vocal and theatrical performances are conducted in the theatre's auditorium with its gold leaf, marbles and mirrors, etc. Even if you can't catch a show here, be sure to take a guided tour of the place and the museum that's adjacent to the theatre.

Theatro Municipal, Sao Paulo Reviews
I only can give one star as the place in front of the theatre is full of homeless people. You feel very unconfortable in between. I can't understand the city Sao Paulo how they don't do anything against that Problem - it ruins the city. Actually 95% of the people in the center are homeless , either you climb over garbage sacks or homeless. Worst city on earth! Whatever you do don't go to Sao Paulo and if you are the lucky one and can't avoid it then only make a trip to Beco de Batman as this place is the nicest and cleanest of Sao Paulo.
One of the best theatres in SP. An important architectural landmark from early 1900's with more than 1500 seats. Is a project signed by Ramos de Azevedo. It's run by the city and offers a selection of good quality performing arts productions at affordable ticket prices.
Gorgeous building with a very interesting history!! However we turned up for the free English tour which is meant to be on Friday's at 11am but they decided they weren't doing one that day... and we had a group of 9 who had planned to go especially. They said next time we should have called in advance, so that would be my tip! Also when they have rehearsals on it's not possible to view the auditorium. Lunch at the restaurant downstairs was delicious, a very generous banquet of traditional Brazilian food with a surprise opera performance in the entrance of the theatro - quite the treat :)
Nice historic building in the old downtown of São Paulo. Really nice spectacles, I went there for an opera with the Orquestra Municipal de São Paulo.
Very beautiful building. There is guided tour in English and in Portuguese which lasted for about 1.5 hour. When we visited in April, the inside theater section (stage & seating) was closed and we could only visit the halls. So we felt the tour was a bit too long for it's worth. It's a nice visit, nonetheless.
