this place is the crowning jewel of bringing the real culture and arts back where they belong----to Downtown Miami.!!!

Arsht could really be on an equal keel with the GreatWhiteWay; the best theatre found in TheWestEnd, London; the greatest theatre venues even in Chicago, LA, Chicago and any other... read more

The Arsht Center, at least the Opera House, is very nice. The featured event, "LookingGlass Alice" is a confusing, meandering blend of Lewis Carrol's "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass", with a dash of "Jabberwocky" thrown in for good measure. Neither me nor my wife, who is an English teacher, really understood the performance.

This theater is gorgeous and spotlessly clean.The staff is organized and welcoming. This is definitely a high quality theater that is well maintained by professionals. We enjoyed seeing Wicked here and we're looking forward to seeing Phantom of the Opera next year! Just remember to pay for parking when you pay for your tickets. We paid $15.00 for parking lot...

The place is overwhelming. It is huge, but everything is signalized. I liked every detail of it. It has so many options. And the opera I went to see was amazing, so different and unique. I recommend this place and its shows to everyone.

I discovered the "Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts" when leaving another Miami's icon: the "Pérez Art Museum"! Bingo! The signs were outlining the American première of the acclaimed "Ballet Nacional de España", bringing to Florida its newest masterpiece - "Sorolla". It was November 2014. I just made a quick stop at the ticket office and got the chance... More

Awesome theatre venue, great staff, loved valet parking option UNTIL it was time to leave and retrive vehicle. It was not the staff's fault but patrons were obnoxious. Had never encountered such rude people at theatre any where else on east coast.

I have been to a few productions at Adrienne Arsht and although the location is quite beautiful the sound in the theater (specifically the Ziff Ballet Opera House) is absolutely dreadful. We have sat in the orchestra, the mezzanine, and the balcony and the quality of sound is awful all around. Balcony seats are honestly not even worth purchasing here... More

First time visiting this beautiful center for the performing arts and thought it was fantastic. My only disappointment was in the lack of places to eat on site, or near by for that matter. Arrived with ample time (2+ hours) and still was not able to eat at any of the restaurants in here. Play was wonderful and seating was... More

Went here today to see Wicked. We sat towards the back of the orchestra section and had aisle seats. However, they did not have a walkway on the other end so there was only the one way in to get to the seats so we had to get up a lot to let people in and out. A bottle of... More
