Recently went to a Sunday afternoon matinee at the Ziff Ballet Opera House. We paid in advance for Valet parking, $25.00 to find out the lot across from the center is a dirt parking lot! This is important to know because after the performance, the valet attendants tear thru the parking lot kicking up the dust and the cloud of... More

Recently, I attended a Lyle Lovett at the Adrienne Arsht Center and in specific in the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall. This place is absolutely beautiful. The acoustics were very good from my seat. My few (minor) complaints: The doors were not open at the scheduled time and the lobby becomes very crowded especially around the bar... More

I came here for a show in August. I bought tickets off the Arscht center website, and then a week later those tickets were released on a discount website such as groupon, living social, etc for a cheaper price. When i called to discuss this matter since I paid TRIPLE for what other guests paid, no phone call was returned,... More

We were here for several shows, such as slava snow show and several of the free gospel series. Great view from any seat,great architecture in all the theaters.Most employees are courteous,professional and helpful while guiding you to your seat. We had a great time at this theater. The center offers valet parking and also self paking for a fee.

I have come to several shows in the James Knight Hall at the Arsht center, and have enjoyed each of them tremendously. There is nothing like an acoustically perfect hall that seats 2200 people. This place is not only beaufitul (blonde wood) but comfortable. The center also has a fairly decent restaurant that you can dine in before or after... More

Arsht center is very beautiful and amazing. Although we had seats on one of the upper most levels, we could see everything very well. Went to see "A Touch of Brazil" and it was excellent.

We are season ticket holders for the ballet. This is a great venue for ballet and all performing arts. The center is easy to get to with ample parking. Seating in the auditorium is well designed and the acoustics are wonderful.

Support the arts and enjoy the afternoon or evening out. The Arsht provides top notch entertainment in an artistically designed performing arts center. We've enjoyed the Florida Grand Opera performances over the last few years. Good seats can be bought at fair prices. Excellent acoustics!

The acoustic are excellent and we enjoyed the performance. Unfortunately we used valet parking and retrieving the car after the performance was a nightmare. . If at all possible they should develop a better system. Cars are delivered and the check number called. If no one drives it off the two lane driveway, it remains to block other cars from... More
