Theater is a central aspect of culture and nightlife in Buenos Aires, a city that is said to have more theaters than either New York or Paris. From the bright-lights Avenida Corrientes mega-productions to the arty off-off-Corrientes performances that take place in such obscure venues as the director's own living room, BA has got it all, and then some. World-class ballet, over-the-top opera shows, intimate one-man plays, international musicals... you name it and it's probably on a stage, somewhere, in the Argentinian capital. Aside from the first name in Argentinian theater and one of the top opera houses in the world, the newly-renovated Teatro Colón, and the major theaters of Corrientes and downtown, BA's principal theater district is in and around Almagro, where the majority of the independent stages are located. Many of BA's numerous cultural centers also stage shows, oftentimes incorporating circus and dance acts into the drama.
