The Ópera de Arame, in Portuguese, or the Wire Opera House, in English, is a theatre house located in the city of Curitiba, the capital of the state of Paraná, in south Brazil. It is one of the major tourist attractions of the city.

The opera house has a max capacity of 2,400 spectators.[1]

Situated in the middle of an urban green park, Parque das Pedreiras, the Wire Opera House theatre, is built out of steel tubes, which gave it its name. It is built on the site of a former rock quarry close to "Pedreira de Paulo Leminski."

The structure is found in the middle of an artificial lake and accessed by a walkway. Designed by Domingos Bongestabs, the metallic structure weighs a total of 360T of steel.

The structure was built in 75 days and opened on March 18, 1992. It underwent many changes until 2006.

The idea is present outdoor shows with a new and innovative perspective.
