“Fantastic Concert!”

Auditorium Oscar Niemeyer
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 August 2013

We had the surprise pleasure of catching Max Gaze here. This is an excellent concert hall without a bad seat in the house. It is situated on the cliff overlooking the Amalfi Coast and the view is equally as beautiful in the evening as it is during the day. We will always cherish the memory of our evening here!

we were curious about this place as it looked out of character in the environment. We knew nothing about Oscar Niemeyer and didn't realise it was an exhibition of photographs of his work. We also didn't realise that there was a charge to see the exhibition and auditorium until we left and a member of staff asked for a payment. There was no information or staff available when we entered. Wouldn't visit again.

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!
