One of the main architectural landscapes in Brazil, beautifully preserved and well presented by the museum guides. For sure, it’s must when visiting the “Tropical Paris”.

The beauty has been restored. The Carrara marble, Murano glass chandeliers, and Chinese silk curtain add to imagining the rubber barons arriving. Don't miss the Lego rendition of the Opera House upstairs.
We took a city tour which included the opera house, our guide got us into an orchestra rehearsal which was just magical considering where we were. The building has seen better days in parts but it is still outstanding and well worth a visit
If you can catch a performance there, by all means do it. Every year in April and May, there is a high calibre opera festival. If there is no performance, take a tour. A beautiful bit of old Europe in the middle of the Amazon.

As other responders have said, you'll need to go to the theatre on arrival, or to the tourist information office on the opposite side of the theatre square. There are some free performances of music and drama. The free tour (in Portuguese) is good. On our visit we were allowed to watch 5 minutes of a symphony orchestra in rehearsal - wonderful. I hope you enjoy Manaus as much as we did.
