Access to the theater by car is not recommended. Use a taxi. Located in downtown area. Be careful walking on theater surroundings after show.

I opened my Flying Dutchman (Wagner) there in 1987. Two years later, my collaboration with composer Philp Glass (MattoGrosso) was opening there and, finally, my Tristan Und Isolde was staged there in 2003. This is the gem of Rio. The Emperor Don Pedro II actually commissioned Richard Wagner to write a "simple love" opera to premiere there in the late 1800s. But the place only opened in 1908. A furious Wagner ended up using the Brazilian sponsored opera and conducted it himself at the HofOper in Munich.
Theatro Muncipal is a beauty - architecturally speaking - even if you're not interested in opera or ballet. The surrounding buildings (Biblioteca Nacional) (National Library) and the Museum de Belas Artes make a wonderful afternoon viewing which could easily end up with an ice cold beer at the cinematic bar Amarelinho, on Cinelandia square (all within the same 1000 square yard circle)
