Going to the theatre in Rio


If you don´t understand Portuguese, it is not worth going to a drama or comedy. But you should go to the musicals. Singing, dancing and tapping are a universal language, especially in Brazil. Several theatres are also used for live music performances, and shows. For a list of current plays on stage check:

Rio has a strong tradition in theatre. Comedies, musicals and other theatrical plays often debut in Rio, and then tour in other Brazilian states.



Most good theatres are in South Side districts and downtown area. If you like theatre you should definitively visit the beautiful and well preserved Municipal Theatre at Cinelândia (Centro). Its beautiful architecture and the excellent program (including operas, ballet and classical music) are a great option if you want to avoid the standard Rio postcard. Do not miss this unique chance to assist the performance of an Heitor Villa Lobos suite in Rio de Janeiro.
