Overview

Highlights

Description

Mad for modern architecture? Obsessed with opera?

Designed by lauded Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, this foray into the lesser-seen innards of Valencia's cultural center, the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, is a melody for the mind and a symphony for the soul.

The building's likeness depends on the peepers. Fish? Spaceship? Warrior helmet? You decide.

Your guided tour not only takes in the 14-story facade, but also its four stunning, future-proof auditoriums – which have played host to renditions of Mozart, Beethoven et al.

It's a true behind-the-scenes tour. Stand where the greats of opera, dance and theater have stood, and see where they prepare to face a near 2,000-capacity auditorium. Learn the science behind the chambers' aesthetics and acoustics, with a knowledgeable, English-speaking guide.

A look about the Centre de Perfeccionament Plácido Domingo is included, so don't miss this opportunity to explore where the next generation of tenors and sopranos learn their trade.

The building is awesome. The tour would be better if it included more about costume and scenery logistics. Perhaps I was spoiled at Lincoln Center and Radio City.

Good as far as it went. Should include access to behind the scenes seamstresses and wig makers, possibly a dressing room and backstage access. Thinking of great tours at Lincoln Center And Radio City NY.
