Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, (The Arsht Center)

In October 2006, Miami became home to the largest performing arts center in Florida.  It was originally named the Carnival Center (for the cruise line), and renamed the Arsht Center in 2008 for the support provided by philanthropist Adrienne Arsht.

Located at the juxtaposition of Downtown Miami and Miami Beach, at Biscayne and the 5th Street Causeway, the Arsht Center represents the depth and breadth of performing arts in the categories of dance, music, opera and theater. The Center consists primarily of two large halls which seat 2,400 guests for ballet and opera, and 2,200 for symphonic and other musical performances.  More intimate spaces are also on site, to allow for a full range of production.

The season begins in October and runs through the end of February, featuring performances by the resident companies: the Florida Grand Opera, Miami City Ballet and New World Symphony.

Additionally, there are series of works throughout the season by a multitude of diverse artistic companies- including the following highlights:

Music: The Cleveland Orchestra, Knight Masterworks Classical Music and Pop, Jazz Roots. 

Dance: Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Ballet Austin, Ballet Flamenco de Andalucia

Theater: “Broadway in Miami” is a series of seven Broadway classics, as well as several other independent Tony award-winning productions and contemporary comedies and dramas.
