This building is truly splendid, not quite, of course, as the famed Bellas Artes in Mexico City, but interesting and with great history. The pity is that almost all beautiful South American theatres rarely have more than four or five performances a month, and that...More

This theater, still in use today, is an example example of Mexican theaters that you occasionally find in cultured centers built during the 1800s. This is beautifully maintained and some of the large historical signage is in English for a greater appreciation of what you’re...More

This theather is the main point of the city. So I will recommend to start your tour with a visit. The price is minimal and well worth the price.. Young children don’t pay entrance.

Attended with a local friend to a dance performance of dances of young performers from different regions in Mexico. The dancers were excellent. The music and costumes were vibrant! The dancers were very professional and talented.

This is Mexico's 3rd most beautiful theater only behind bellas artes in Mexico City and degollado un Guadalajara. You can enter the theater limited hours so check online. I personally like to see it at night but during the day is beautiful too.

A real treat. Throw back to a bygone era. Wooden seats. Multiple levels. Not a bad seat in the building.

We had the privilege of attending the Concerto Köln at Teatro Juarez during the 2017 Cervantino. What a breathtaking venue! The theater is beautiful, and the acoustics were wonderful--the perfect place to attend a performance by such an accomplished ensemble. We also attended the Ballet...More
