Inspired by the design of the Palais Garnier opera house in Paris, the Teatro Municipal was designed and constructed between 1905 and 1909 in Rio’s city centre at a time when Rio de Janeiro was still the capital of Brazil. The theatre was restored and modernized during the 1970’s and 1990’s as the city’s population grew and the number of visitors to the theatre increased. The theatre is popular for its ballet productions and classical music shows
