"Coliseu do Porto" is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2017. It is an historic building that has been in the heart of Porto's people. Here one can enjoy music concerts, ballet, watch movies, etc. This time I came here with family to see my nephew's Ballet school performance. It is a nice venue which entails an almost professional production with... More

We went to the Coliseu on Thursday 5th to watch the Nutcracker (Russian ballet) . The performance was fantastic but personally I could not enjoy the 2nd part due to the freezing cold. I watched the rest of the audience trying to keep warm, too. Whoever would consider going to the ballet and put on gloves, scarves, boots, etc. Had... More

Coliseu has been around for decades but it needs improvements, especially the seatings. Despite that, it's the biggest stage in Porto centre.

We went to Porto on 22nd May 2015 for 9 days. The Coliseum do Porto was open for the first few days that we were there, but we noticed that the poster advertising what acts were coming up stopped at the end of May 2015. Sure enough, the poster was taken down and it looks as though workmen have moved... More

I just felt its not that big of a deal! Yes it's pretty, it's "different" from what we normal see, but the chairs in concert hall, are uncomfortable and I believe that it's not very preserved which is sad of course.... Because the potential is obvious! I would come back of course, but I don't believe the building it self... More

A great venue in the heart of Porto. I watched concerts, ballet, cinema and many other shows in there throughout the years. This is a must go for any Porto lover. It's really magic. I think it's possible to visit it with a guide that shows all its "secrets". I only been there to watch shows but maybe one day... More

One of the most beautiful concert halls in Portugal. If you are in Porto and have the possibility to go there to see a concert don't miss it.

The Coliseu do Porto is a theatre in Porto. Together with the nearby (but unfortunately abandoned) Batalha Cinema, the Coliseu is a very good example of Portuguese Streamline Moderne and Art Deco. Construction started in 1937 and the building was declared finished in 1941. The project was a result of the collaboration between Jan Wils (Netherlands) and several Portuguese architects... More
