Spanish word of the day: la sinfonía

Translation: the symphony

Teatro Colón is one of the most well established theatres in Argentina. It’s also known as one of the best lyrical theatres in the world, as it is renown for it’s operas.

COVID temporarily shut down the guided tours, but luckily, they just opened up again last week. So, my program took us all to the theater to learn more about the history.

The current building was finished in 1908 and took nearly 20 years to build. There was also a long period of time where the general public could not attend shows, it would be by invite (or prestige) only. Luckily, that is not the case anymore, and I was able to attend the symphony with some friends.

It’s a gorgeous building, with a feeling of royalty almost. I recommend a tour at the least if you don’t want to watch a whole opera.
