Have been to several concerts in this auditorium, all highly enjoyable. The great window behind the stage is not always visible. It is when an orchestra is performing and is not visible when, say, a ballet requires scenery. Always good acoustics and always an impressive building from inside or out. A real architectural tour de force. Wonderful location beside the... More

Theatre looks great from the outside and the auditorium was excellent - great seating with good acoustics. I went to a concert by the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra. Even though I had a "cheap" seat at 30 Euros it was in an excellent position. It was a great concert made extra special by the spectacle of looking down on the orchestra... More

We were walking around the area and enjoying the scenery. There was a beach which people were sun bathing but more than that was the huge number of people surfing. In my opinion the beach was not good enough for swimming. It was too windy. There is also a big mall nearby which you can buy whatever you want. The... More

The Spanich architects are excellent. This is a work of Oscar Tusquets, who desingned a castle with a lighting-tower. The wall behind the stage is "misssing", there is a glass wall and you can see behind it the see. The concert hall itself is excellent, we had several concerts, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchester was this year the main orcheste at... More

You can see the building from all over beach of Las Canteras. Located in the end of the beach, close to shopping centre Las Arenas. Nice architecture outside and inside. I have been there once at a concert. Steep tribune gives you good sight all over. Ticket office in the same building.

The Alfredo Kraus Auditorium is a great building in a great location. We've enjoyed classical concerts which are part of an ongoing programme by the Philarmonic Orchestra of Gran Canaria and it's a real delight to sit in the auditorium looking down on the orchestra with a dramatic view of the waves visible through the huge window behind them.

Visit in concert is maybe the first thing to plan when you are travelling to Las Palmas. The truth is that every week Auditorio Alfredo Kraus offers good concertos and other events. Normally I have asked tickets from ticket office few days before event and there is always room for few persons. If you like to have some vine before... More

Booked online, just had to show our e-ticket on our smartphones. Attractive hall. Convenient for taxis before and after. Bar a bit lacking.
