The Centro Cultural Miguel Delibes houses the seat of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y Leon, the Professional Music Conservatory, a 500-seat chamber music room, a 1700-seat auditorium, the Symphony Orchestra hall, class rooms and rehearsing rooms for the Drama High School, the Professional Dance School and the Experimental Theatre. The facility also includes a library and an exhibition hall.
Both the auditorium and the chamber music hall are technically state-of-the-art and provide excellent acoustic conditions.
The 400/600-seat experimental theater hall was designed to offer almost unlimited versatility to accommodate a wide variety of shows.
The scheme integrates three differentiated parts unified under one wave-shape roof, a symbolic form that represents the sound waves of the music. The three buildings, within a single envelope, are distributed around a large covered open central space, conceived as an interactive atrium.
This public facility allows for the development of a new program of activities, thus contributing to the regeneration of the local area by offering a range of valuable cultural services to the wider community.
