opera houses in Latin America

Opera director André Heller recommends concert venues in Latin America


Teatro Colón

Buenos Aires, Argentina

“One of the most celebrated theaters in Latin America! The acoustics is amazing, and big opera stars have performed there. I’ve directed four spectacles in Buenos Aires, but at Teatro Avenida. Working at Colón is my dream!”


Teatro Solís

Montevideo, Uruguay

“My grandmother on my mother’s side spent her childhood in Montevideo. I have a special fondness for Solís, one of the oldest theaters in Latin America, opened in 1856. There I directed the operas Macbeth, Ariadne, and Don Pasquale. They offer daily tours, also available in Portuguese.”



Theatro Municipal de São Paulo

São Paulo, Brazil

“My favorite theater since 2006, when I directed an opera there for the first time, developing a relationship of love with the backstage departments, the audience, and the city. Located in the city center, it’s home to the Coro Lírico, the Coral Paulistano, the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra, and the Balé da Cidade.”



Sala Minas Gerais

Belo Horizonte, Brazil

“One of the newest and most modern concert venues in Brazil. With unparalleled acoustics, it’s home to the Minas Gerais Philharmonic. Offering a unique experience to the audience, this space has a varied schedule of events at great prices.”
