An ostentatious glass pyramid. The greatest there has ever been here. What more do you want?
15 years of performances. 3 million spectators.
The over-the-top architectural structures in São Paulo are best exemplified by the city's musical palace: Via Funchal. With 15,000 square metres of pyramid-shaped building and a tinted glass facade, this building even comes with a helipad on the roof in case you want to arrive in style. Sparing no expense, inside you can also find its own energy-generating system in case there is a power cut in the city; the show can continue without any interruptions. Its stage has seen a variety of performances from Joe Cocker to Coldplay, and not forgetting Deep Purple, Bob Dylan, Caetano Veloso and the Moscow State Circus. It must have done something right during its 15 years of existence, as it has now surpassed the three million mark of eager spectators taking to its seats. The show starts as soon as you walk through its doors and is comparable with some of the best theatres in the world - Broadway, London and Paris.
