Campos Eliseos Theatre, Bilbao, Spain

Alfredo Acebal
Date Built
Bertendona, 3 - bis 48008 Bilbao
The Bilbao Tourism website says of this remarkable theatre that, "... If anything defines this modernist building .... it is its beautiful art nouveau façade, designed by the Basque-French decorator Jean Batiste Darroguy. Because of this unique façade this theatre, a listed monument,  has always been known as "The Chocolate Box". In 2010 the Campos Elíseos Theatre was opened again after a restoration process undertaken by the City Hall of Bilbao and the General Association of Authors (SGAE). Now it is a modern space with a capacity of 800 seats, with features for sets and cutting edge technology."
