Since 1976, the internationally-famous amphitheater has hosted a number of Brazilian music concerts. It has launched new musicians and received others already at the top of the charts. In 1977 alone, these events attracted more than 50,000 people.
As of the winter of 1978, the area was home to the “Dancing Days” disco club, a major sensation in the Rio nightlife. In the summer of 1979, it was replaced by “Noites Cariocas”, an eclectic club that gathered the latest music and dance trends and was directed by the renowned Brazilian music critic and journalist Nelson Motta.
The amphitheater was also the venue of great carnaval balls between 1977 and 1987: the “Sugarloaf Carnaval Ball” organized by music industry businessman Guilherme Araújo, on the Friday opening the traditional Carnaval festivities in Rio. In 1981 Araújo also launched the first New Year Party on the Suspended Gardens of Morro da Urca.
In 1979 and coordinated by Carnaval producer Joãozinho Trinta, it was time for samba and the “Beija Flor Sobe o Morro” show, where top-league Beija-Flor samba school provided an extravaganza of rhythm and color that became one of the most important tourist attractions in Rio de Janeiro. The summers of 1986 and 1987 were livened up by the music concerts under the Verão Musical no Pão de Açúcar series.
The amphitheater, with bleacher seats for 700 people, can hold a wide variety of events, such as cocktail and dinner parties, product launches, events, weddings, concerts and shows.
