Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is really a true sacred temple of the Brazilian theater! Besides being one of the most modern Brazilian theaters, there is a fantastic history behind its curtains. On July 9, 1958, a week before its official inauguration - foreseen for July 14, 1958, a big fire destroyed almost completely the new theater. Its reconstruction took 9 years and only on March 4, 1967 it was finally inaugurated. From then onwards, "Teatro Castro Alves" has staged the most important spectacles in the Brazilian theater, as well as performances by world acclaimed singers, orchestras and other musical groups. Check its programme, visit the theater complex and enjoy an always great performance! Enjoy!

We were privileged to listen and watch the symphony practice then had a tour of the facility. It was a very modern auditorium and they were rebuilding the outdoor amphitheater as well as other areas. It was interesting to see this facility this way.

Built in 1957 and with inauguration to July 14th 1958, 5 days before the inauguration there was a major fire that damaged almost all the theatre. Reconstruction began with slow steps and after 9 years closed the reopening was in March 4th 1967. After numerous successful concerts, closed again in 1989 to refurbishing reopening only in 1993.

I saw 1 MPB performance and really enjoyed it, the acoustics in the theater were great and the seats are stacked to allow you a view of the stage wherever you are. I was practically at the second last row at the back, but still had great sound and sight of the stage.

This theatre has definitely seen better days but it is worth checking what shows are on as you might get the chance of seeing some wonderful local music performers.

The second level you need binoculars. Acoustics need revision and sound quality is below par. The only stage in town to accomadate an orchestra or ballet. So be it!

Modernist architecture from the late fifties with a tragical history of two fires.
But even if not that much into modernist architecture of the last century, this theater has a few interesting elements. From the Campo Grande Square, it looks rather modest. But if you see it from the other side, it's totally different with its intelligent use of the hilly location and introducing a giant shell shaped open air arena with over 5000 seats. Inside there are always a few exhibitions going on, perfect for escaping a few minutes the Bahian heat.

And why not pick up a performance? Culture is nearly the only thing in Brazil that's cheaply priced. 20 Rs for a normal performance. And if you are lucky, or clever, you can get free entrances. Try during daytime the little office in front of the theater and ask if there are free tickets available for the same evening. If yes, you can use these vouchers to obtain your real ticket through the bilheteria at the left side of the TCA. But the ticket shop only opens from noon on!
