The Auditorium of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria bears the name of Alfredo Kraus, the most international Canary Island tenor and the most beloved by the general public. This is a gesture of tribute and gratitude for his work in the music world, his figure carrying the name of the city to the ends of the earth.
The building that houses the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium, the work of architect Oscar Tusquets, is one of the most outstanding and representative constructions of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Situated at the end of Las Canteras Beach, this isolated and independent fortress was designed as a lighthouse to identify and protect the city. Ever since it was opened, the image of the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium as a sentry watching over Las Canteras Beach has become one of the most emblematic views of the city.
It was built between 1993 and 1997, and served as real catalyst that breathed new life into this part of the city and reactivated a culture industry that was crying out for a multi-purpose venue to host events of all kinds.
It was opened on the 5th of December 1997 by H.R.H. the Prince of Asturias accompanied by local tenor Alfredo Kraus. For more information about the venue click here.
