Our love of theatre in the UK is huge, from classics like Cats to a trip to the pantomime, so why not take a trip to the theatre in Valencia on your next visit?
This is a great time for theatre in Valencia. This week the city is hosting firm favourites the Russian National Ballet, performing Swan Lake or El Lago de los Cines and The Nutcracker at Olympia Teatro, and staging Los Miserables at Palau de Les Arts Reina Sofia, from next week, starting 22nd November to 22nd December.
With 16 theatres in Valencia, there is plenty to choose from, whether your priorities are music, drama, opera or just to try something a little bit different while you are away. The bigger theatres in Valencia – the Olympia, the Principal, the Rialto and Palau de Les Arts – are well worth visit and the smaller are likely to give you theatrical experiences you won’t find anywhere else.
Teatro Off has a theatre school and is recognised across Spain as a leading organisation in the field of education for the Performing Arts and Audiovisual. The name “off” represents the theatre’s independence: it operates for people looking for a flexible and open centre for art and creativity.
Teatro La Estrella is a theatre within the UGC cinema in Valencia – a hidden gem you will want to find if you are travelling with children. It is holding performances of Goldilocks and the Three Bears on dates throughout November: check their website for events taking place during your trip.
Teatre El Musical puts on drama, musicals and music events and has another attraction – the entrance of this theatre is the highest in Valencia, giving it an additional aspect of architectural interest. It is located in the maritime district of Cabanyal with the building itself replacing a former cinema.
