Fodor's Review

Built during the rubber boom of the late 1800s, the grandiose Teatro Amazonas was financed by wealthy Brazilian rubber barons who wanted a cultural gem rivaling those in Europe. All the bricks for the building were brought over in ships as ballast from England, and the crystal chandeliers and mirrors were imported from France and Italy. Don't miss the awe-inspiring ceiling murals in the main hall. Operas and other events are presented regularly. Monday-evening performances

are free and usually feature local artists of various musical genres. The Amazonas Philharmonic Orchestra plays Thursday night and can be seen and heard practicing in the theater weekdays 9–2. A variety of foreign entertainers also have performed here. Half-hour tours are conducted daily 9–4.
