Luis A. Ferré Performing Arts Center

Luis A. Ferré Performing Arts Center
October 8th, 2014

Centro de Bellas Artes Luis A. Ferré, otherwise known as the Luis A. Ferré Performing Arts Center, features theater halls and three main areas for concerts, stage plays, operas, and ballet productions, and is considered to be Puerto Rico’s most highly recognized venue for the performing arts.
 
Be at the Next Casals Festival
 
It has hosted artists like renowned Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo, is home to the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra, and the venue for the yearly Casals Festival, named after cello maestro Pablo Casals, a gathering of the best cellists local and international. Recently, it opened to urban music, albeit with criticism.
 
The Antonio Paoli Festival Hall is the Center’s largest hall which seats from 1,875 to 1,945 with VIP balconies in two stories. Named for a famous Puerto Rican opera singer, the hall has a stage that measures 62 x 50 feet equipped with high technology acoustic system.
 
See Amateur and Professional Theater Productions
 
Stage plays are performed at the René Marqués Theater Hall, aptly named for Puerto Rican playwright and essayist. A 42 by 40 feet stage and a seating capacity of 748 to 781 have witnessed numerous performances, from professional productions to student theater groups.
 
Respected costume and set designer Carlos Marichal has a Performance Hall dedicated to him. It features a 210 seating capacity in an arena-designed theater style. Independent theater groups find performing at the Carlos Marichal Performance Hall more intimate precisely because of such an arena design.

Hear Music with Brilliant Acoustics
 
Sala Sinfonica Pablo Casals, the symphony hall named after the Catalan cellist who was also a well-known conductor, is a $34 million structure that seats 1,300 and is now home to the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra. Symphonic, chamber, and popular music concertos are performed with brilliant acoustics here.
 
Dedicated to exponent and composer of Puerto Rico’s danzas, the Juan Morel Campos Plaza is a large and open square surrounded by gardens, fountains, monumental murals and sculptures with an 800-capacity for musical events, trade fairs, conventions, and even private affairs.
 
After-Theater Culinary Delights at Las Tablas
 
The Sylvia Rexach Theater Café – an homage to Puerto Rican singer and composer of bolero music – offers a relaxing atmosphere for 200 people with an small stage for performances by stand-up comics or local jazz groups. Its walls are decorated by famous local artist Antonio Martorell’s xylographic mural.
 
Erstwhile known as the Arts Pavilion, the Las Tablas Restaurant is located in the Juan Morel Campos Plaza with a menu developed by Puerto Rico’s culinary icon Giovanna Huyke, executive chef at Washington, D.C. restaurant Mio and prepared by in-house chef Alexis Bartolomei.
 
Take Time to Visit
 
Experience the annual Casals Festival, which maestro grande Pablo himself founded in 1957 (as well as the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra), and book early for February 2015’s cultural event. Students, persons with disabilities, and seniors get a 50% discount.
 
Whether you like theatrical performances, stand-up comedy, ballet, opera, jazz bands or Shakespeare, take time to visit the Luis A. Ferré Performing Arts Center when you’re in Puerto Rico’s capital of San Juan. Schedule of upcoming artistic performances is available from Puerto Rico’s Que Pasa visitors’ magazine.
