History of Solis Theater:
Constructed in 1840.
Designed by an architect, Modena Carlos Zucchi.
Construction stopped due to civil war in1843.
Resumed construction by an architect Francisco Javier De Germendia who modified Zucchi’s original plan in 1852.
Opening performance was on August 25, 1856.
We attended the Festival Mozart conducted by Diego Naser..
Ticket for this performance was 150 Uruguayan Peso (US $8) for 1.5hr. Tickets could be purchased at the door, but advance booking is needed for better sitting. The price is the same for all sitting. Credit card is accepted because not all businesses in Uruguay accept credit card.
