Despite the fact that Argentina’s most prestigious opera house, the Teatro Colon, is still closed for renovations, the city is celebrating its 100th anniversary. One of the major opera houses of the world, the theater has hosted such singers as Pavarotti and is one of the prides of the city. The series of 20 events celebrating its place in Argentine culture and history begins tomorrow at 8:30 with a concert at Teatro Opera by the Buenos Aires Philharmonic Orchestra, performing the music of Alberto Ginastera. There will also be tours of the opera house and further performances by the Colon Theater Chamber Opera, Academic Orchestra, and Stable Ballet. Tickets for all events are on sale at the Colon Theater’s box office, 4378-7315.
