I saw contemporary dance there, and the performance was OK, but the theatre itself was impressing. Just remember to put on some clothes, I caught a cold there because of the strong AC.

Have the pleasure of attending a concert by the Yucatan Symphony Orchestra and was delighted with Tchaikovsky and Brahms, the architecture is spectacular and located near most boutiques hotels in down town.

Our first time back to the symphony in 2 seasons and boy, did we miss it. What a wonderful way to spend either a Friday evening or a Sunday afternoon. The theatre itself has been restored and is beautiful (and air conditioned), with a museum in the lobby. There are 4 levels of seating not including orchestra (floor seats). We... More

A visit yo Merida would not be complete without a trip to view this magnificent opera house. When planning your visit to Merida, inquire if you can attend an event here.

We stumbled on a performance in the theater quite by accident but we taken in by the majesty of this old theater. If you are not in town get a chance to take a peek inside as it will bring you back to a lost time

While the venue might seem a bit run down (mainly the seats because the actual construction is beautiful), the events they offer are great! Lots of classical pieces played by locals and ex-pats alike. My roommate went almost 3 -4 times a month. I'm not a music person so I wasn't wow-ed during my two visits, but I appreciate that...
