We attended a performance of Bizet's Carmen here and it was outstanding. It's located on the riverside and easy to find. A friendly bi-lingual usher kindly showed us to our seats. A really enjoyable evening in an attractive venue.

This is a venue of architectural brilliance. Seeing Ludovico Einaudi playing here in the main theatre - it was a scintillating performance with a passionate crowd to match it. Brilliant accoustics, lighting, design - REALLY impressive!

To celebrate my husband's birthday, I bought tickets to a concert of the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra with repertoire of Mozart, Bruckner and a local composer at the Euskalduna. Tickets could be bought at the box office or online. Don't forget to check when the box office is open should you decide to buy it there. We bought our tickets online... More

Went there to a gala for Basque ballet students abroad . Theme was Basque legends scripted by the noted author Toti Martinez de Lezea . Modern and elegant theater with modern design and impressive acoustics.

I was shocked by its big & huge scale. You may say it is an administration building than a Music palace? However, its location is strategic along the river sie and it is accessible by the common transport. Didn't go inside..... Sorry!

I could not go inside the building as there were no shows so I could only see it from the outside. It looks absolutely stunning. Specially the part of the building that is covered in rusty metal. For me it was worth the walk

The building is situated right next to the river opposite were we stayed. Different to other musical venues I have visited in the past and ultra modern.
