Teatro Colón information
La Candelaria's most famous theater – and the city's loveliest – reopened in 2014 after a six-year renovation. It hosts a repertoire of large-scale opera, concerts, ballet and plays for a dressed-up, high-end crowd. There's also traditional Colombian music on Mondays at 7:30pm and children's plays on Sundays at 11am.
