Fodor's Expert Review Teatro João Caetano
Rio de Janeiro Theater
The city's oldest theater dates to 1813, and while the building itself is less than spectacular, the 1,200-seat venue hosts some interesting productions. These tend to be accessibly priced so it's worth a look, especially since the once-seedy area around the theater has been smartened up. The monthly program focus on celebrated traditions and cultures from around the country through music, dance and events.
