Spend an afternoon or evening enjoying a symphony concert, an opera or Broadway show. The Blumenthal brings in top performers and first-run touring companies which you can appreciate in an elegant and comfortable venue. You can buy tickets for whole season or for an individual performance. Get on their email list for special offerings.

We have attended several types of live performances at this arts center. Seating and sound quality are geneally good, not great. Ladies room is very attractive and large. Lines for beverages can be long for the popular events.

Had a wonderful Saturday night attending the Charlotte Symphony concert. It was absolutely great. The director was stunning. The staff was very attentive for you every need. Will purchase tickets for next season. Our seats were great.

We had a wonderful time and were able to expose our young children to the orchestra. Our seats were front row, which did make it a little difficult to see the screen, but we really got to see the instruments up close. Great experience for our family!

I saw two performances at the Blumenthal Performing Arts center. The first was at the smaller Booth Theater and the second at the large Belk theater. Both had a lot of ushers, more than I've seen at other performing arts centers. Everyone was really friendly and helpful in finding our seats. While I liked the intimate Booth Theater, there was...

We love attending shows at Blumenthal. Whether it is an Opera Carolina Production or the Broadway Lights series (or something else entirely) We always enjoy performances here. I don't really think there is a bad seat in the house, and the venue is comfortable. It makes me feel at home and also allows me to feel glamorous. The Orchestra seating... More

I am a regular theater and symphony buff, and absolutely love going to Blumenthal. There are always a variety of shows and events at this venue. What's more is that the venue itself is top-notch. I highly recommend this event space--make sure you take in a show at some point no matter if you are a local or a visitor!

The Blumenthal Performing Arts Center is actually a collection of venues, but the centerpiece is the Belk Theater, located in the heart of Charlotte's center city. Seating in Orchestra or one of the balconies provides multiple vantage points. The upper balcony feels a little distant from the action for me, but all other seating is excellent! I would give 5...

I have visited the Blumenthal PAC on various occasions. It is a well maintained theater for all types of performances. Easy parking, accessibility from the parking deck, and a great variety of bars and restaurants in the vicinity make for a wonderful night out.

Got invited to the Christmas show by the Symphony. The lobby and auditorium were decorated to get everyone in the spirit of Christmas. Then the show started and everyone sat in awh at the sound and performance. Don't miss another performance like I won't.
