Located on the banks of the Potomac River, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts first opened its doors in 1971. Since that time, this elite performing arts facility has brought a wide variety of classical and contemporary performances to the stage and has delighted generations of theater-goers.
The Kennedy Center is actually a collection of individual theaters, each best suited for a different type of performance, including ballet, opera, and symphonic performances. The stages also play host to plays, smaller ensemble performances, and interactive, educational programming for children. In fact, this facility is the nation’s busiest performing arts center, hosting more than 3,000 events each year.
Heading to the Kennedy Center’s website is the best way to get a sense of what performances are currently on stage before heading over from Residences on the Avenue. Purchase your tickets online for easy pick-up at will call!
