You cannot beat an evening of classical music in an incredible setting. We sat on the lawn at the very top and were glad that we did. The sound was fine and the mountain backdrop view was spectacular. I am sure that the people sitting in the actual amphitheater seats had better sound, but they did not get the view.... More

A great venue in the mountains with very comfortable seating, great acoustics, and fabulous concerts with great orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic.

Where else can you hear the New York Philharmonic for a mere $28 per person (if you opt for lawn seating). The evening we were there was absolutely beautiful which also added to the lovely experience.

Loved the concert by the Dallas Symphony that we heard there. First one was hits from movies and the other was a 4th of July extravaganza!!!!!

We saw a free concert here and the place was beautiful. Bring your blanket and arrive early to get a seat with the big rocks to lean up against. Super Comfortable!

This is a great venue. Small and personal. We sat in one of the covered seats for Darius Rucker. The back drop is beautiful and there is plenty of lawn seating. You can buy wine, beer and cocktails.

We didn't attend an event, but the place is beautiful--architecturally and in concept. Wished we were there during concert times.

The intimate atmosphere and seating for this amphitheater make it very unique. One can be under a covered area, in case it rains, or on the grass with terrific seating. I would go to see a music performance here anytime I'm in Vail. Not to be missed. The botanic garden next door is fabulous.
