The Hult Center, while small by some standards, is, in my opinion, a top-tier event venue. The acoustics are excellent and there are not really any bad seats in the house. Sightlines are unobstructed from any seat. We have been to ballet, opera, comedy, musicals, symphony and rock concerts here. The best seats in the house are the loges, located... More

Attended a concert here this week & just have to say that Eugene is lucky to have such a great performance space! Very relaxed atmosphere, the seating is comfortable & the acoustics couldn't be better. Had a thoroughly enjoyable experience & can't wait to attend another event.

A surprisingly unique and upscale venue for a small city like Eugene. A modern sophisticated design using materials native to the area (large Douglas Fir timbers) and a very open airy lobby and theater lend an illusion of enormous size. Well done, Eugene.

Eugene must be proud of this beautiful and acoustically sound performance venue. We attended the Buddy Guy concert and had seats that allowed us to see and hear everything! Comfortable, sufficient leg room and handsome. If you buy a drink in the lobby, you can put a lid on it and bring it into the auditorium. So enjoyable.

Too funny. I didn't think I wanted to see this show. I am so glad I went and wished every female friend, co-worker and family member was with me. It was hysterical and true. I laughed to tears. It was amazing that four women could sing, dance, perform for 90 minutes straight and be so creatively entertaining. Thumbs and all... More

Opera, ballet, graduations, concerts, Broadway shows, symphony, puppet shows. The Hult Center hosts both resident and traveling performances. The building itself is worth a tour. (look for the hidden tributes to those who built the Center and keep it going.) If you can go to the ticket office to purchase tickets (instead of online), you'll get some help in finding... More

I had never been to the Hult Center before. Wow, how amazing this place really is. The seating was amazing, the room and handicap accessibility was great. The air flow in the building was adequate as well. Must see.
