  • A cosmopolitan yet traditional city like Guadalajara deserves to have a Theatre like the Theater of the Slaughter. Located at the back of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Guadalajara is a haven of art and quiet in the center of the city, in which there is also an EYE party... The musical presentations, plays and colloquia are constant and can be admired one of the most famous French Neoclassic Theatres in Mexico. Its Nocturnal visit is forced in Guadalajara by the play of lights that crowns its capital and its high columns.. You can take a walk by calender only 1 block and a half from it. Highly recommended.

  • It Is A real shame that it Is so difficult to visit the Theatre. I saw it years ago and it's magnificent. Now that I came back to Guadalajara I couldn't see it. It Is closed Most of the time (except when there is function). A jewel like that should have a schedule for daily visits either function or not.

  • Highly recommend coming here . The architecture is impressive inside and out. Centrally located in the historic center with parking nearby. It’s also close to many pedestrian friendly plazas.
  • The space was beautiful and the acoustics were outstanding. We enjoyed the Jalisco Symphony Orchestra, and they were fantastic. Prices we're very reasonable.
  • From Culture Trip: "For a traditional theatrical experience in Guadalajara, getting tickets for a show at the historic Teatro Degollado is a must. Opened in 1866, this imposing downtown building is the best conserved example of neoclassical architecture in all of Latin America and one of the most important performing arts institutions in the country." Recommend getting tickets for a dance performance, symphony, or orchestra.
  • One of Guadalajara's most iconic places to visit. Been there a few times but I still get mesmerized about the architecture, the vibe and how well it has been preserved.
  • Very good acoustics, the inside of the theatre is beautiful, access to big underground parking lot, and well situated on the city center
