A wonderful building in the heart of downtown. Beautiful Belle Époque style architecture. Well worth a visit even if there is no performance. Old Rio at its best.

With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
