The opera was too expensive. Opera Naples is more fairly priced.

“Went to see Les Miz at the Phil - what a wonderful venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

The design and layout of the Philarmonic Centre for the Arts is simply exquisite. Small enough to be intimate and large enough to draw great shows, the main hall and foyer are very elegant. With all the art and sculptures everywhere, there something for every taste.

The sight lines are good and the acoustics excellent. The only drawback are talkative patrons who forget that they are disturbing other when they chat during a performance. Perhaps it has to do withe the age of the people in attendance, many of them are hard of hearing and speak louder than normal as a result. But don't let that deter you, it's a beautiful venue and should not be missed.

Ample parking and easy access in and out.

Am going back next week and again in two more weeks. I love this place!!!

“Excellent concerts and shows”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

This is an impressive concert hall in Pelican Bay just off Tamiami. There is a central courtyard where one can enjoy drinks or snacks before the show or during intermissions. Also within the building is the Museum of Modern Art, which always has an interesting exhibition to enjoy before a show. We winter regularly in Naples and always take in a concert or two. This year we enjoyed Carmen which was put on by the Sarasota Opera. The Phil, as it is called, is a great place to take in cultural events when enjoying the winter months down south.

“The Cultural Heart of Naples”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

The Philharmonic Center for the Arts is located adjacent to and directly associated with Naples Museum of Art. There are some wonderful permanent works of art on display within the center by such acclaimed artists Dale Chihuly and Albert Paley that are enough to whet any artistic appetite... but the center is acknowledged for it's excellence in the performing arts, be it Rock and Roll or Beethoven, Tom Jones or Les Miserables. This center truly is the cultural heart of Naples.

“Art in all it's forms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

The Naples Museum of Art displays both permanent and guest exhibitions of work in a wide variety mediums and themes.
There are some wonderful permanent pieces on display by acclaimed glass artist Dale Chihuly and spectacular metalwork by artist Albert Paley that are enough to whet any artistic appetite... but just in case you're not convinced may I suggest that you check it out for yourself.
