Ladies and Gentlemen, may I proudly present you the pride of the Americas, the Argentinian glory, Teatro Colón, an opera house in Buenos Aires. Now recognized as one of the five greatest theaters in the world, the Teatro Colón is not only a place to celebrate music. It's a place to celebrate Argentina. It is internationally renowned for its acoustics and its heritage value, showcasing the Italian and French influence on cultural architecture in Argentina.
Designed by an Italian, but unfortunately he dies. Redesigned by another Italian, but oh oh, he gets murdered by his wife’s lover. Finally, the completion of the project was taken over by the Belgian architect Jules Dormal. The construction of the present theatre took 20 years. The city planned to open the theater on October 12 of 1892, the 400th anniversary of Columbus' arrival in the Americas. That’s why the name Colón.
It has a capacity of 2,478 seats and can fit up to 3,000 including those standing. In the center of the dome, a bronze chandelier hangs with a total weight of over a ton and a diameter of 7 meters. Within the dome, there is a space that allows musicians to generate different sound effects. How awesome is that!! And another astonishing thing is, it doesn’t matter where you sit, you will enjoy the same acoustics as anywhere in the theater. The quality of the acoustics in the Colón Theatre is owed to the technical knowledge applied in the form of a horseshoe. As it causes a proper reflection of sound it becomes an echo chamber. ** Additionally, the architectural proportions of the room and the quality of the materials – the distribution of the wood, the tapestries, the curtain and the carpets- maintain an equilibrium that contributes to the favorable acoustic conditioning.
Long live classical music!! ** Source: Archdaily.com
