Bilbao’s Campos Elíseos Theatre has been run by Klemark Performing Arts & Management since 2017, when the company won the public tender to choose the programming and manage the space, which is a municipal property. Known as ‘the chocolate box of Bertendona’, it was inaugurated in 1902 and is considered one of Bilbao’s most artistic venues.
Diversity is the main characteristic of this theatre’s programming, always heeding the utmost quality standards for its performances. Klemark alternates its programming with own and foreign productions, the very best Spanish and international companies and emerging groups.
We can also find two very different lines in its listings: Campos Comedy, bringing together the country’s most famous monologists; and Kupula Bilbao, a series in collaboration with the City Council that puts the spotlight on the city’s artists.
The building, classified as an Asset of Cultural Interest, was expanded in 2010 after a meticulous restoration and modernisation, which increased its area to 7300 m2, conserving its original modernist façade.
The Campos Elíseos Theatre has two performance halls – Sala Teatro and Sala Cúpula – equipped with cutting-edge technological infrastructures that enable the hosting of nearly any stage format. Its offices include training classrooms and audiovisual production studios. The second floor is also home to the Klemark distribution office – Creatio 300.
