In its first headquarters, the Teatro Colón functioned from 1857 to 1888, the year it was closed for the construction of a new room. It was inaugurated on May 25, 1908 with a function of Aida.

In its beginnings, the Colón hired for its seasons to foreign companies; from 1925 he had his own stable bodies -Orchestra, Ballet and Choir- and their own production workshops, which allowed him, the 1930s, organize their own seasons funded by the budget of the city. Since then, the Teatro Colón has been defined as a theater of season or stagione with the capacity to carry out the entirety of an entire production thanks to the professionalism of their specialized scenographic bodies.
