Euskalduna Jaureguía is a huge theater that is used for many different types of representations. Unfortunately, that doesn't always work very well. We were there for the opera; but this is not an opera theater. The acoustics are poor, the pit too open. The sound...More

The Palacio Euskalduna (= Basque Palace in Basque) is a multifunctional space, modernly built in an enchanting location on the river. It offers the symphonic orchestra, a conference centre, restaurants and much more. Great.

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.
