I have lived in Eugene for almost 50 years and remember when the Hult Center was built in 1982. I have been to innumerable symphonies, ballets, operas, musicals, and Bach Festival Concerts since then. For a mid-size city, it's amazing we have such a fabulous performing arts center, with comfortable seating, excellent acoustics, a large and small performance hall and... More

This place is a huge rip off. Drinks are extremely overpriced. The ushers escort you to the wrong seats. Bathrooms are dirty, and not maintained very well. The seats are uncomfortable at best. It's time to demolish this "has been" place. That won't happen, I know, so the best that can be accomplished is using the greed money and revamp... More

For a town the size of Eugene we are fortunate to have a Venue like the Hult Center. The facility is beautiful, with a real northwest feel, great location, good parking access. This is home to the symphony, opera, ballet, Radio Redux and numerous other local performances throughout the year. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful in making reservations... More

Got to finally sit and watch the Nutcracker last year and an Opera this year! It was fun going with a special rate for students :)

We came up to watch our son perform in the Nutcracker Remix. It was such a cute spin on the Nutcracker, we really enjoyed the venue and the show.

The Hult center is a gem in Eugene. I've been there for rock concerts, plays to the ballet. Excellent venue and a treasure for this small town.

We had a nice time seeing Paula Poundstone. The Hult Center is right in the middle of downtown Eugene, so close to local restaurants, hotels and other hot spots. Plenty of parking near by. The venue is very people friendly, plenty of space for all the shows they have to offer. Will definitely come here again for another show.

Whether it be classical, jazz, country, or pop this is the place to hear it. It's central to Eugene, near dining, and simply a jewel for the city. Unlike many cities, parking isn't an issue (which is a real plus in the rain). Though the acoustics aren't "perfect", they're darn good, and you won't find a truly bad seat in... More

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
