Entertainment and Events
Rio boasts an impressive and dynamic arts scene with a multitude of events held at venues that are often quite striking. For information about what’s going on (in Portuguese) check out the arts sections of the two daily papers, Jornal do Brasil and O Globo, or purchase Veja Rio, which comes with Veja magazine and offers comprehensive listings of everything going on in the city.
For upcoming events in English as well as Portuguese, log on to www.riodejaneiro-turismo.com.br. Tickets (which are generally quite affordable) can be purchased directly at theaters and concert spaces.
