“Class Act”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Who would have thought that a venue with this much sophistication would be located in such a remote area.

A beautiful theatre in a beautiful setting filled with Chihuli glass sculptures. The concert was great. it was worth the 10 mile drive.

“Gold Medal Concert Pianist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Once in a lifetime opportunity and we only had to travel across Texas, not fly all the way to Europe to see this masterful artist. Unbelievable that Ruidoso NM has this caliber of worldwide theater & performance. Gorgeous venue indoors & out (fountain), but inadequte lighting to parking lot, so pack a flashlight for a night performance.

“Great Theater!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This is a wonderful theater to go to a performance and they also have a very interesting morning tour that you should take advantage of. There is literally not a bad seat in the house but I prefer the balcony seats on the sides. Check online for their schedule of performances and tours and to purchase tickets. They tend to have one new performance every three weeks. Usually not headliner Broadway productions but if it is something you are interested in you will love the facility and enjoy the performance.
