Teatro Amazonas – Opera House in the Heart of Amazonia

Share/Bookmark

The Opera House is an attraction not to be missed upon visiting the city of Manaus. This gorgeous theater was built at the height of the rubber boom, using European designers, decorators, even raw materials. Construction began in 1884, under the supervision of Italian architect Celestial Sacardim. No expense was spared: roofing came from Alsace, furniture from Paris, marble from Italy, and steel from England. On the outside of the building, the dome was covered with 36,000 decorated ceramic tiles painted in the colors of the Brazilian national flag. The inside was decorated by Italian painter Domenico de Angelis.
