Such is the effect of the curved lines of the Auditorio. These are its main features that combine perfectly to shape room after room, halls,…curves per excellence, majestic, elegant. Unmatchable.

Can I buy my ticket at the box office just before the concert?
In normal circumstances we have a “last minute” box office that opens two hours before the show. This service is not currently available due to the new safety and prevention measures in force. Tickets are only on sale up to two hours before the show to secure a safe entrance to the auditorium.
We recommend you buy your ticket in advance, either online or by phone on 902 317 327. You can also come to the box office but need to make an appointment before (book your appointment online or on 922 56 86 25)
What happens if I lose my ticket?
If you’ve lost your ticket or couldn’t print it, don’t worry. Tell us about it, we’d be happy to help.
If you notice a few days before the concert, contact Auditorio in the usual opening hours (information line 922568611*). If you notice at the time of the show, please talk to our front of house staff. Any document proving the purchase would be most helpful.
* If you wish to buy tickets you need to call 902 317 327 to secure safe payment.
Can tickets be changed or refunded?
Once the ticket has been purchased changes or refunds are only allowed in exceptional cases when show dates are changed or cancelled.
Are there special prices for the underage and the unemployed?
Shows organised by the Auditorio de Tenerife have special prices for the underage, unemployed, students and large families.
In all cases you must provide proof of your right to the discount (ID card, student card, large family card, unemployment card, etc.) before going into the auditorium.
Can I book my ticket?
Auditorio de Tenerife does not allow seat booking.
Do young children pay?
Admission is free for children aged under 2. We would also like to remind you that except for those shows specifically designed for families, our programme is suitable for people over 5 years of age.
What is the best place to meet my friends or companions?
The building itself is quite recognisable. It is close to the bus exchange and the tram stop. It only has one access where you can meet.
Are programmes given with the ticket?
Right now, in compliance with the safety and prevention measures, you will not be given any printed materials as you walk into the auditorium. You can see the full programme on our website. We will also email it to all the buyers so they can read it before coming.
Is there a place to leave my suitcase or coat?
To comply with the safety and prevention measures, the cloakroom service is not currently available. We thank you for taking your belongings with you in the auditorium.
Can I get in if I am late?
As a general rule access to the auditorium once the show has started is not allowed. However, you may be exceptionally allowed in at a suitable moment, depending on the type of show.
If I have to leave the auditorium, will I be allowed in again?
You cannot access the auditorium again once you leave. Except in specific family shows or in performances that allow for it.
Can I get in with a drink?
We ask you not to as it may be a nuisance to other people. If you wish to carry a bottle of water please ask the hall personnel beforehand.
Can I take pictures or videos?
Responsible use of mobile devices is allowed provided that other users and performers are respected. In classical music and operas taking photographs is not allowed at all.
Are there intermissions? How long are they?
Most shows have a 20 minute break but intermissions can be longer or shorter or there may be none.
You can check this point in the information about the show on our website or on 902 317 327.
When do I clap?
In classical music concerts and operas you traditionally clap at the end of each piece rather than at the end of each movement so that the music can flow softly between sections or to prepare the scene for the following movement. In the programme you can see the number of movements in each piece.
Having said this, in this type of shows we suggest you look at the conductor who usually signals the end of the piece or, just follow the other people in the audience. At any rate, we love people showing their enjoyment but if you feel uneasy about when to applaud it is always best to wait for others to start…
Can I eat something after the concert?
Yes, you can have dinner at the Bistró.
Is there a car park area nearby?
The Auditorio has its own car park which opens in the morning and closes after the shows. There also parking areas 5 minutes from the building.
