If you have recently enrolled at Berklee College of Music or are hoping to do so in the near future, then you may well be looking forward to studying at the Valencia campus during the forthcoming academic year. The world-famous Boston music college opened its Spanish campus in 2012 and its European hub has been growing steadily in stature ever since, leading to more and more applicants every single year.

With many of our Collegiate Marina Real students often on the hunt for the best places in Valencia to see the very best opera, we have put the following guide together detailing when and where you may be able to find the very best acts in the city.


Palau De Les Arts Reina Sofía

The Palau De Les Arts Reina Sofía will become very familiar to any Berklee students, as the Palace of the Arts is just a stone’s throw away; a mere one-minute walk away in fact. Since its grand opening some fourteen years ago, it has become the epicentre of Valencia in terms of opera and all other manners of classical music.

We’re sure it won’t come as a surprise to learn that many of the finest musical events in Valencia are held there, not least the opera.


Valencia’s Royal Opera House 

Such is the reputation of the Palau De Les Arts in Valencia, that it is regarded to be the home of the Royal Opera House in the city. Indeed, it has been championed and often curated by none other than Helga Schmidt who was part of the Royal Opera from 1973 to 1981. The name of such a huge figure from the genre has helped to attract some of the biggest names to the city, from Zubin Mehta to Lorin Maazel.

What’s On At Les Arts in 2019? 

You can find out lots more about the Temporada, the list of musical events taking place at this fantastic music venue, by heading to the official website. Here you can find out what Opera will be taking place during the remainder of 2019 as well as some dance events, traditional concert and even recitals.

“Les Emocions A Flor De Pell” is the next big Opera event, but as you will find out, the venue has all sorts planned and you can buy tickets with ease and also take advantage of your student discount. Absolutely perfect for budding musicians and students in Valencia.
