Attended the rehearsal of the Charlotte Symphony. The conductor was wonderful and connected with the audience, the acoustics are fantastic, the performance was in the morning -- so no problem with being tired -- and the cost at $18 for center orchestra 10 rows back could not be better.

The Blumenthal Performing Arts Center is a wonderful venue for all live performances. From traveling Broadway shows to smaller theater plays and performers the venue is always top notch. We enjoy the Performing Arts Center many times each year and have never been disappointed in the venue

We were in Charlotte for one night and decided to see the Nutcracker at the Blumenthal. It was an excellent show! The ballet and the symphony were amazing, the ticket prices reasonable, and was a very nice facility. Overall, excellent!

This was a POPS concert for Christmas starring the Charlotte Symphony and Oratorio Singers. There also starred Melinda Doolittle and a Children's Choir. The music was terrific. The acoustics grand. There were plenty of volunteers to help you find what you needed. This is my third time in this terrific venue and it won't be my last.

I saw Sister Act and absolutely loved the play. I paid for a seat in the orchestra section a few rows from the stage. The seats were comfortable and there was plenty of leg room. I don't know if I would splurge for those seats again because the theater is set up in such a way that I can't imagine... More

Back in day, I was on the volunteer team for opening day of this PAC. We have visited many times since for different types of events. We are always pleased and leave filled with joy. Every seat in both The Belk and The Booth is a good one. Acoustics are superb. The Belk is simply beautiful to see even before... More

Beautiful venue in Center City. Very clean with most courteous staff of any theater we have been to. Surprised to find loitering has been addressed in area making our time in town much more enjoyable than expected. Plenty of facilities for the ladies so intermission was not stressful. Good, quick Mexican grill across street.

I recently went to see Under the Street Lamp and Gentleman's Rule and both shows were outstanding! Both shows had the audience singing along and dancing in their seats. When that happens at any concert it is a perfect barometer for how good a show is. They both were very engaged with the audience and it was a super fun... More
