“Unique but ...”

Auditorium Oscar Niemeyer
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 July 2013

I only gave 4-5 stars for the reason of its distinct presence.

While I am amazed at its location, the views it provides visitors and attendees of performances, the unique architecture, and an attempt to be seamless within and against the backdrop of the hillside and smallish communities surrounding, it is not so seamless -- and less so from the sea.

I felt that the structure speaks more loudly than it should for its environment and even more so to look upon the hillside from the sea -- it is too clearly visible and a bit out of place -- too modern to inhabit a place where people have for centuries carved the hillside for housing and gardens while preserving the natural beauty.

However, it does provide a good host for the arts.

I am a fan of Oscar Niemeyer. I think the building is a must see especially the front left corner that appeats to float high over the sea, Its a great view.

Highly criticised but I find this innovative example of architecture an interesting addition to the stunning Amalfi coast where there are far worse eyesores condoned by local political interests.
High quality agenda of events. Book in advance!

As a board member of the West Hartford Community Theater, and seeing our cast perform "Broadway in Ravello" we had a fantastic experience. The acoustics are beautiful, as is the stage and the views from the auditorium seats of the coast and the Mediterranean Sea. The history of this building is well worth the read.

The building is way too modern for the setting and stands out from its surroundings...and not in a good way. Hated the sculptures. In a town that goes way back in history, this building just hurt my eyes.
