We saw the Nutcracker last night after years of not seeing it. It was so beautiful. The gorgeous and traditional music was perfect but the contemporary costumes and sets were out of this world. The children were adorable and each character smiled throughout the scenes. It could not have been more enjoyable. Congratulations to the Phoenix Symphony and Ballet!!

We saw this show at the Virginia G. Piper Theater at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. What a beautiful theater it is! What amazing musicians that give their hearts and souls to their performances! With that said, we were somewhat disappointed in the overall performance. It was not the full symphony, but a smaller group of them and... More

I am relatively new to the Phoenix area and had the opportunity to attend my first Phoenix Symphony concert for their Holidays Pops. Symphony Hall in downtown Phoenix was awesome. We sat in the orchestra level towards the rear and the sound was perfect and we still had a clear view of the stage. The orchestra was amazing. I've attended... More

We've seen a few concerts here; for adults and for children. The events are always professionally done, Amazing staff and a great seat no matter where you sit. The kids love the snacks and hot chocolate!

I have been to a few operas here (Az opera) and am always amazed how professional these show are. I am from NYC and in other cities have experienced subpar performances. Not so for AZ opera! Extraordinary talent, terrific set designs. Some tips; I'm a seat snob, for best viewing sit center front orchestra, but no closer than the third... More

We are fortunate enough to have season tickets for the Coffee Classics at the symphony and recently enjoyed a performance of Beethoven and Brahms pieces. The symphony hall is an attraction in itself with its beautiful chandeliers and art work. The musicians are excellent and bring passion to their performance. I have always enjoyed the music at the symphony and... More

Events and productions are worth attending! Never been to a disappointing show. Christmas time events are even more enjoyable.

I'm not certain if "Phoenix Symphony" refers to the hall or the performance company so I'll review both. Phoenix Symphony Hall is a beautiful establishment that is well organized. Picking up tickets through will call was efficient, the bars inside flowed smoothly and there were enough of them that the lines were not long. The decor is rich and inviting.... More

It was absolutely lovely. Sold out. Lovely theatre. . . . . . . _------------- I don't have more to say. A must see. Is downtown. Don't let the taxi driver take you to the school.
