Set Current Location
The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra performs regularly at the Belk Theater, the largest auditorium at the North Carolina Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. The theater is constructed so that there are no seats more than 135 feet away from the stage, providing an intimate setting even with over 2,000 people in the audience. In addition, a fiber-optic network with thousands of multi-colored pinpoints of light is placed throughout the audience chamber for spectacular light displays. Call or visit the Blumenthal Center's website for information on upcoming events and tickets.
The North Carolina Blumenthal Performing Arts Center was opened in 1992. Although it has four theaters under it's management, only The Belk Theater and Booth Playhouse are physically part of the Center. Belk Theater offers the largest seating, hosting up to 2,100 people at full capacity, while the Booth Playhouse is a courtyard-style proscenium theater. The other two theaters the NCBPAC runs are the McGlohon Theatre at the Spirit Square and Duke Power Theatre at Spirit Square.
This theater, staging productions for children, is located in the uptown neighborhood. Many of the productions are by the famous Tarradiddle Players group.
