Teatro Arriaga in Bilbao
The Teatro Arriaga is a beautiful opera house situated in Bilbao, Spain. This theater was built by architect, Joaquin Rucoba in Neo-baroque style in 1890. Rucoba is the same architect who designed the city hall.
Presently, the theater is entirely owned by the municipality and is even properly managed by a private limited company, which was incorporated in 1986. Today, the theater welcomes first class artists to showcase their live performances. Also, the theater has offered lots of premiers and has produced shows that have been premiered to cities around the world.
Teatro Arriaga is named after Juan Crisostomo de Arriaga, who was known that time as the “Spanish Mozart”. In 1985, the theater was rebuilt, after it suffered severe damage due to huge fire. The theater was reopened on the eve of festivities and honored Saint Nicholas of Bari, the parish where this place is situated.
