Where I stayed
Teatro Solis is a gem! Amid so much that is slowly crumbling away in Montevideo, Teatro Solis shines like a beacon of hope. It is the nearest thing to a national theatre that Uruguay has. Built in 1856, it has recently been lovingly restored and the attention to detail is of the highest standard. Even the bathrooms are works of art, bearing comparison to such Chicago icons as the Art Institute and Symphony Center.
We attended a modern dance performance given by the local Ballet de Sodre. The main event was a performance of Tierra y Luna (Earth and Moon) from a poem by Federico Garcia Lorca. Both the music and the dance were outstanding.
The pictures of the theatre show much more than I can describe.
