A gigantic auditorium hosting up to 3,000 people, located in a concrete, bunker looking like building... A huge centre dedicated to art performance.

My experience, Explo description: 

In the 1970s, Pedro Antonio Ríos Reyna presented a plan to construct a theatre that served as seat of the Venezuela Symphony Orchestra. Architects Tomás Lugo, Jesus Sandoval, and Dietrich Kunckel designed the building.

The theatre was inaugurated in 2 phases. The Jose Felix Ribas room (February 1976), and then the Rios Reyna room and the rest of the complex opened on April 19, 1983.

The Teresa Carreño Cultural Complex is one of the most important Theaters of Caracas and Venezuela, dedicated to symphonic and popular concerts.

The theatre is constructed on a land of 22 thousand square meters. The theatre was thus called in honour to the pianist Teresa Carreño.

Recently, the centre’s facilities have been expanded with two exhibition halls, one dedicated to the pianist Teresa Carreño and another one to the composer Reynaldo Hahn.

Mondays to Fridays, 9:00 AM. to 5:00 PM.

My personal recommendations: 

I visited the complex with a guided tour. This is the best way to visit it, I really recommend it.

Tuesdays to Sundays, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

How getting there: 

Metro Parque Central, or Bellas Artes : 2 minutes walk.

This part of the Caracas Centro is ok, but not so safe. Do not go there at night.
