    Auditòrium

    This spacious, modern theatre is Palma's main stage for major performances, ranging from opera to light rock, ballet, musicals, tribute bands and gospel choirs. The Sala Mozart hosts part of the city's opera program (with the Teatre Principal), while the Orquestra Simfónica de Balears (Balearic Symphony Orchestra) is a regular from October to May.

    Teatre Principal

    Built in 1854 on the site of a 17th-century predecessor, destroyed by fire in 1858, rebuilt in 1860 and again restored in 2007, this is the city's prestige theatre for drama, classical music, opera and ballet. The renovation recreated the theatre's neoclassical heyday and combined it with the latest technology, resulting in great acoustics.

    RCD Mallorca

    Palma’s RCD Mallorca, which plays at the Iberostar Estadi, about 3km north of central Palma, is one of the better sides battling it out in La Liga. Never champions, they usually wind up achieving mid-table respectability. You can get tickets at the stadium or call the ticket booking number.

    Jazz Voyeur Club

    Tiny, intimate Voyeur hosts live bands nightly for much of the year – jazz is the focus, but you'll also hear flamenco, blues, funk and the occasional jam session. Red candles burn on the tables and photography (including a permanent exhibition by Gerardo Cañellas) graces the walls. In autumn it hosts a fine jazz festival.
