Palau de Les Arts Reina Sofía

Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía in Valencia is a unique venue designed by Santiago Calatrava. The building is home to four different theatres: Sala Principal, designed to host opera, ballet and other performing arts events. Auditori, equipped with cutting-edge sound, cinema and video systems, holds concerts and audiovisual performances. Aula Magistral, suitable for chamber music, is also used for recitals, conferences, lectures and children’s theatre. Teatre Martín i Soler, provided with an orchestra pit, is designed to accommodate chamber opera and Baroque pieces.

The artistic quality of the Palau de les Arts performances is as magnificent as its architecture. It is a meeting point for internationally acclaimed stars – such as Zubin Mehta, Lorin Maazel or Plácido Domingo – as well as for the new generation of artists under the leadership of its Intendent and Artistic Director, Helga Schmidt.

Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana is the orchestra-in-residence at the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía. It plays in the pit during the opera season and performs a symphonic and chamber music repertoire both at home and on tour around the world, having earned international recognition.

Lorin Maazel is the orquestra’s musical director. Maestro Zubin Mehta is also closely linked to the orchestra.

Cor de la Generalitat Valenciana, the choir-in-residence at the Palau de les Arts, is internationally recognised as one of the finest choirs at present.
