Euskalduna is basically a multiple concert and events hall building. It's located near other basque attractions like Doña Casilda Park, Bilbao Fine Arts Museum, Gran Via Boulevard and within walking distance from the Guggenheim Museum.

We went to see a Verdi opera which was an amazing production using all the visual effects that the huge stage and its gimmicks allow. Being in the top tier of the venue and seemingly a huge distance from the stage, I was anticipating having an issue with hearing everything clearly. But the acoustic was amazing and you could hear every little detail. And the architecture is stunning. Well worth a visit.

The Bilbao Symphony Orchestra (BOS) recently put on a varied program of Tchaikovsky, Adams and Stravinsky. Although only 4 minutes in duration, Adams' "Short Ride in a Fast Machine" was stunning. It's one of my favourite pieces and as I'd not heard it performed live, I was very much looking forward to the BOS interpretation. Amazingly, the ticket prices were so inexpensive. The venue itself is visually stunning - inside and out. Check out the ceiling in the main Auditorium! The box office staff are multi-lingual and very helpful. Note that it doesn't take AMEX cards. Drinks and nibbles at interval were also very well priced (heaps less expensive that the Met in NYC!). If I lived in Bilbao, I'd be a regular!

Everything in Bilbao is quite modern so, this center is also quite interesting to visit ;) attended La Traviata there and despite being at the end I could see and hear perfectly.

It's a stunning place. Not just because it's a great building in the inside and very suitable for many kinds of events (radio shows, operas, theather, company events, ballet...), but also because from the outside you see it as an old ship, which is very suitable for the city history and area where it's located. Amazing.
