South America's most famous opera house will reopen May 24, nearly four years after it shut down for a monumental restoration that has run two years over schedule.

Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri set the date in a Wednesday announcement revealing that the Teatro Colon is finally ready to again put on performances. The opening will come a day before Argentina celebrates the bicentennial of its independence.

The 2,478-seat, gold-trimmed theater has hosted such opera stars as Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Enrico Caruso, the tangos of Astor Piazzolla and ballet greats Rudolf Nureyev and Mikhail Baryshnikov.
