Went there to a gala for Basque ballet students abroad . Theme was Basque legends scripted by the noted author Toti Martinez de Lezea . Modern and elegant theater with modern design and impressive acoustics.

I was shocked by its big & huge scale. You may say it is an administration building than a Music palace? However, its location is strategic along the river sie and it is accessible by the common transport. Didn't go inside..... Sorry!

I could not go inside the building as there were no shows so I could only see it from the outside. It looks absolutely stunning. Specially the part of the building that is covered in rusty metal. For me it was worth the walk

The building is situated right next to the river opposite were we stayed. Different to other musical venues I have visited in the past and ultra modern.

It's ok conference center, but it's not interesting at all as an attraction. Just a place to host conference.

I expected to be more surprised by this place. I was surprised but not in the way I thought. I didn´t like very much but, once again, the landscape is wonderful-
