Teatro Angela Peralta
This is the premier place to see a play or a concert. It's located in the heart of downtown at the corner of Hernandez Macias and Mesones. Built in 1873, the theater was opened by the reigning queen of opera in Mexico, Angela Peralta. Thanks to extensive improvements, the sound is excellent and there isn't a bad seat in the house. On your way in, take note of the mural "Homage to the Arts" in the main lobby. The theater hosts ensembles during the Chamber Music Festival in August, jazz plays during the Cervantino Festival in October, and concerts during the International Jazz Festival in November, as well as weekly events by local and visiting artists.
