Great acoustics in the beautiful Silva auditorium. Only drawback is seating. You don't want to sit in the balcony if you suffer from vertigo. Any other sections are fine. The smaller Soreng theater is more intimate and very nice. Hult also has a nice gallery in the basement where different types of artwork are on display. Currently local artist Barbara... More

This is Eugene - not New York or Paris...but you know, we still do pretty good. My mom and I try to see at least two shows a year and so far, the ones we have been able to see have been just wonderful. I do like the Hult Center. It is a little dated in some ways, but in... More

This is really a wonderful venue. We have been going here for years. There is so much here to take advantage of and very convenient to Roseburg. As another reviewer mentioned, there is hardly a bad seat in the house. Get on the mailing list now and start scheduling your year of events.

Lovely venue for concerts and performances. Have never had a bad seat and have always enjoyed each experience. The acoustics are good and the seating is comfortable. Staff has always been helpful and courteous. We have found the selection of performances to be varied enough to hold our interest and look forward to the next ones!

this is a well made modern performance hall with additional small performance spaces right in downtown Eugene. The seating is comfortable.

Hult center is a great venue for classical music. We heard Verdi's Requiem for the finale of the Oregon Bach Festival. It was an amazing concert with 3 choirs, a large orchestra and sound that filled the arena.

My husband and I have attended several concerts at the Hult Center. On every occasion, we were happy with our seats, even if they were located further away from the stage. The facility is very nice and each theater offers its own design and staging. It seems the Hult Center always has good shows to go to. It's a great... More

This building is a sterling example of what Pacific NW architecture is all about: a well-orchestrated blending of wood, glass, and concrete. The soaring lobby is one of the state's most beautiful indoor spaces. Best of all, the two auditoriums are perfectly suited to their function: seats are properly aligned to the stages so even the "nosebleeds" get a good... More

What a wonderful facility for a wedding reception! Next to the Hilton on one side and parking on the other side. For anyone staying at the hilton, it is an easy walk. A beautiful facility with very friendly staff to help you find your way.

Having bought tickets for eight people, I was hoping this would be a GREAT show! It was advertised as a collaboration between the Cherry Poppin' Daddies and the Eugene Ballet and I expected a fun night of music from one of our favorite bands and some great dancing to boot. When we got the program we saw that there was... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your review! While we completely understand your frustrations, we can't really address your comments on the performance, (that portion of the review would be more appropriate for Eugene Ballet Company) but we can talk a little about seats. You are absolutely right that different seats have different advantages and disadvantages. Seats... More
