“Batting average 500%”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Miami is not a "culture" capital ... Don't know why ... perhaps because "culture" needs money and Miami's "money" also live other places and give the money and time to othe places and here they just party. Arsht Ctr is Miami's extraordinary gift to itself. Personally, accoustics are more important than performance and the Opera House has them in spades. The Concert Hall disappointed me when it opened and I haven't been back since.

“Nice facility -- not crowd friendly though”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Was in the Knight Concert Hall and enjoyed the sound. The lobby of the hall is not set up well for crowd flow and it was very hard to get around. Getting to Will Call was a pain, and the Will Call line competes with people trying to enter the building. The intermission scene of people trying to get drinks etc. is a mess because it is a long, narrow area and people are packed in there like sardines. It is not pleasant and trying to get to the restroom requires swimming upstream through a mass of people. These kind of issues compromise what otherwise would be a totally wonderful experience.

Great venue for all of the performing arts in Miami. Easy access, valet parking and beautiful venue. Love to see the Miami City Ballet here in particular! Can't wait for the new season.

“A Delightful Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Ziff Ballet Opera House
1300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami
305-949-6722



Always an excellent experience going to the theater, Seeing The hilarious gang of soooo professional puppeteers that comprise the 'adults -only arm' of the Jim Henson company' was a thrill. The improv was called "Stuffed and Unstrung" and was a delight. Almost totally by audience suggestion, The puppeteers showed their endurance,(much harder work than I had ever imagined), wonderful Broadway voices, and amazing ability to think, speak, sing, and move (and strrreeetch) all at the same time! Definitely NOT a show for children as the puppets were delightfully bawdy. PUPPET UP!!

Beyond a terrific time, I want to give kudos to Neal Hoffson , the house manager that saw that I had a physical need for some beyond-the normal customer service and arranged some special transportation UP the aisle and so my car would be brought right up. So very nice, I felt royal. Definitely NOT a typical Miami customer-service experience. Thank you, so much, sir. I will be back, many times
