Lovely venue for concerts and performances. Have never had a bad seat and have always enjoyed each experience. The acoustics are good and the seating is comfortable. Staff has always been helpful and courteous. We have found the selection of performances to be varied enough to hold our interest and look forward to the next ones!

this is a well made modern performance hall with additional small performance spaces right in downtown Eugene. The seating is comfortable.

Hult center is a great venue for classical music. We heard Verdi's Requiem for the finale of the Oregon Bach Festival. It was an amazing concert with 3 choirs, a large orchestra and sound that filled the arena.

My husband and I have attended several concerts at the Hult Center. On every occasion, we were happy with our seats, even if they were located further away from the stage. The facility is very nice and each theater offers its own design and staging. It seems the Hult Center always has good shows to go to. It's a great... More

This building is a sterling example of what Pacific NW architecture is all about: a well-orchestrated blending of wood, glass, and concrete. The soaring lobby is one of the state's most beautiful indoor spaces. Best of all, the two auditoriums are perfectly suited to their function: seats are properly aligned to the stages so even the "nosebleeds" get a good... More

What a wonderful facility for a wedding reception! Next to the Hilton on one side and parking on the other side. For anyone staying at the hilton, it is an easy walk. A beautiful facility with very friendly staff to help you find your way.

Having bought tickets for eight people, I was hoping this would be a GREAT show! It was advertised as a collaboration between the Cherry Poppin' Daddies and the Eugene Ballet and I expected a fun night of music from one of our favorite bands and some great dancing to boot. When we got the program we saw that there was... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your review! While we completely understand your frustrations, we can't really address your comments on the performance, (that portion of the review would be more appropriate for Eugene Ballet Company) but we can talk a little about seats. You are absolutely right that different seats have different advantages and disadvantages. Seats... More

We saw Jason Mraz and Raining Jane here this past Saturday. The theater is beautiful and unique looking. There is barely any over hang in the lower orchestra section. We were in ROR EE center and had an amzing view. Leg space was decent but the seats were a bit small, that's not an issue for me but I could... More

The beautiful facility combined with the vast selection of arts and artists that perform there makes the Hult the crown jewel of Eugene. Don't miss the chance to see some of the world's best shows right there in little Eugene Oregon.

Unless you are sitting on the orchestra level or box seats on the side you are SCREWED. I'm 5'6 and in the upper decks my knees are pressed solid against the seat in front. If anyone has to leave, consider yourself tea bagged or worse. Then there's the tilt. I have been on roller coasters that had less decline, you... More

Hi Cindy, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we really do value your feedback! We want to take the time to clear up a few misconceptions and be sure you have the right info about productions here. The Hult Center does not set prices for shows that come through and rent our venue. Each show determines... More
