Shows in Rio de Janeiro

Brazilians are not the shy and retiring type, and Rio de Janeiro shows are a suitably flamboyant explosion of colour and sound, dancing and drama.

Rio Carnival is possibly the world's greatest show, and anybody lucky enough to be in the city for the main event should snap up the chance to see the breathtaking samba parades at the purpose-built Sambódromo. The rest of the year, it is possible to see scaled down versions of the parades at Cidade do Samba (Samba City)in downtown Rio.

During the Brazilian summer (December to March) shows in Rio de Janeiro take place in many a public space, from Copacabana Beach to the Arcos da Lapa (Lapa Arches) and are often free of charge. Look out for the programme of summer events at Morro da Urca, Sugar Loaf's little sister peak.
