The Palacio de las Artes Reina Sofía is part of the first large cultural and leisure-time complex of its kind in Spain: the 'City of Arts and Sciences'. The palace, designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, is a multi-purpose building with the general aim of developing cultural activities of all kinds, especially focusing on teaching and promoting the arts. The architect and creator of this building is also responsible for 'L´Hemisferic' (the planetarium) and the Science Centre in the same city. The Palace opened its doors for the first time in 2006. Today, it is a beautiful and respected opera house with unique high tech features such as screens that display lyrics on the back on every chair and an adjustable orchestra pit used to achieve the best acoustics possible. The stage is also able to adjust itself to accommodate symphony concerts and ballet performances. Subscriptions and individual tickets are available.
