The show is the art work of Dave Parkhurst of Alaska Naturally, Inc. The show is great with some explanations and great music. Afterwards your able to purchase photos of the Aurora Borealis as well as the accompanying music. This is a super cheap attraction for a great cause.

What a waste of money and time ! I wanted to learn something about the Norther Lights, not watch a bunch of pictures of it with background music! We were so bored we left not too long after it started. So many more things to do in Anchorage !

Save your money & time,- skip this. The shots are beautiful but for me it would've been so much better with more narration inc how the phenomena was viewed by native people & folklore around this. It's very overpriced for what it is.

Whilst we were roaming around the city centre, we popped in as someone had mentioned that they thought a Northern Lights film was on there but after walking around and getting a little lost, we left. In hindsight, I think we were a week too early.

My wife and I visited to see the slide show set to music, "AurorA — Alaska’s Great Northern Lights" in the Sydney Laurence Theatre. The show lasts 40 minutes, and you get to see a lot of the Aurora Borealis, in all its colorful glory. There are discounts for seniors and active/retired military.

Beautiful film on the Northern Lights that lasts over 30 minutes. It tells the scientific reason for the lights and how difficult it is to photograph. The colors are amazing and fantastic display. Do not miss it if you have the time. Show every hour on the hour.

The performing art center is beautiful, very organize and super professionals.
This show was about the chines dance history, the music of orchestra was pure perfection. We enjoy the two hours that the show lasted.

The venue and type of shows are first rate. I would highly recommend getting season tickets, as it allows you free ticket exchange, if you suddenly find yourself with a scheduling conflict. We just attended Celtic Women, which was a great show. Their "backup band" was the Anchorage Symphony Orchestra, quite the treat.

My wife & I ventured out on a rainy October evening to watch a local dance troupe interpret several Leonard Bernstein tunes including a few from Westside Story. The performances were energetic & sometimes frenetic but always in tempo with the music. The contemplative pieces were graceful & compelling in their storytelling. The 15 piece orchestra was delightful as were the live vocal accompaniments. It was an awe-inspiring evening with a less-than-capacity audience in an intimate setting. Check the schedule when you’re in town & you’ll be guaranteed a soul refreshing experience. Absolutely loved this venue & the performers. Bravo!

We are subscribers to the Anchorage Concert Association, so our family enjoys this venue multiple times a year. Comfortable and clean, with good acoustics. Super lucky to have so many quality performances come to Alaska each year, and for them to have such a quality place to perform!
