The Arriaga Theatre is one of the most important buildings in the city of Bilbao.

It is inspired in the Paris Opera House and was inaugurated in 1890. It is the work of architects Joaquín Rucoba and Octavio de Toledo. The building is named after Bilbao composer Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga, whose bust presides over the imperial staircase. Its façade is in eclectic style, with large balconies.

It has a year-round programme of artistic activities, with theatre performances, opera, ballet, concerts, cultural events...
