Opera in Buenos Aires

We have a question about opera at Teatro Colon. On the day we arrive Norma is playing. We’re not sure how exhausted we’ll be at the end of that day, but we’d like to keep the opera possibility open. Right now we see there are some seats available. Do you think there’s much likelihood of getting tickets late on the afternoon of the performance? On our previous visit we went to see Don Quixote there, but we bought the tickets in advance. Teatro Colon is such a magnificent space to see an opera, we’d be sad to miss out this time.

We arrive the morning of the 5th. We're unavailable for the performance in the evening of the 7th.

Well, unless you can switch your commitment for the 7th, you'll have to settle for the Colón on the 5th, which is more expensive, as I'm sure you noticed.

Not possible to switch, so we will just try our luck with getting seats on the 5th. Thanks. Kathy

FYI: I wanted to report back that we had success in getting same day tickets to "Norma" at Teatro Colon on Dec 5. Even though we were exhausted from our flight, we went to the ticketing desk the afternoon we arrived. The only tickets left were standing room only ones (price $5-10 ), and we took them. We stood, it wasn't that tedious, and there were some sporadic benches in the walking space behind us .Well worth it to hear the famous, beautiful aria in the first half. Beautiful opera space, acoustics incredible!
