Kennedy Center Opera House Events

The Opera House is the second-largest theater in the Center. Also noted for its decor and embellishments, its unique red and gold chandelier is a gift from Austria that contributes to the elegant setting of the Kennedy Center Opera House. And this creates the perfect backdrop for a highly anticipated show, which is exactly what you'll get every single time the Kennedy Center gets ready for a big event. It's not just the Washington National Opera, however, as you also can find top-tier musicals like "The Lion King," the Bolshoi Ballet and plenty of other top events, and you just never know what's going to show up next.


Kennedy Center Opera House Trivia

Do you know that the Kennedy Center Opera House hosted George Bernard Shaw's "Caesar and Cleopatra"?

Telling the often overlooked story of Julius Caesar and Egyptian princess and eventual queen Cleopatra, Shaw's acclaimed performance was put together for a great run at the Kennedy Center Opera House back in the 1970s, making it one of the more famous shows that has played here.
