The magnificent Colon Theatre has the most beautiful belle epoque interior and is a well-loved venue in the city for ballet, opera and classical music. Pavarotti once praised its incredible acoustics and it’s a wonderfully striking historic monument. Hiding a secret in every corner of its impressive building, this behind the scenes guided tour of the theatre gives you a chance to discover its hundred year history, the legendary artists who have performed on its stage and the shutdowns it suffered over the years before its glorious re-opening. Explore its back corridors, dressing rooms, sculptures and stained glass windows as well as hearing anecdotes about its history and characters. The tour is of course subject to the theatre schedule, which varies through the year.
