I stumbled on this theater complex that is set back from the road and not well marked. The box office is all the way to the back - and there doesn't seem to be much advance promotion of events. I stumbled on a night when the symphony was playing so got tickets and had a great night of classical music... More

The Symphonic orchestra in Puerto Rico is a wondeful group. Going to a concert is relaxing and also intriguing to watch the people all around.

Music theater, food, statutry, all found in this mecca for culture in Santurce. Parking is easy and there is always something going on. Worth a visit in the daytime, just to see how Puerto Rico is presenting its love of the arts.

Bellas Artes is a wonderful place to hear the Puerto Rico Symphonic Orchestra. It is also fun just to hang out before the show and enjoy the culture of the locals.

This is the premiere spot for small concerts, plays and one man shows. It has three distinct arenas, one large one for concerts, a smaller one for plays and a really small one calle Sala Experimental, where you can watch edgy plays in a different atmosphere. It is a government-run building, but you wouldn't know it because of all the... More
