The theatre is beautiful, and I would say that it is the finest venue for opera in the metropolitan area. It is smaller than our usual theatres in America; it is, in fact, redolent of a European opera house. I was highly impressed.

The Jefferson Performing Arts Center may be the best opera house in the metropolitan area.

Words cannot express how much I enjoyed the West Side Story performance this past Saturday evening! From the singing, the choreography, the costumes and the orchestra..everything was simply phenomenal! I have been to your facility many times; however, this was the first JPAS production I have been to. From the moment that I walked into the door, my experience at your facility was amazing! The customer service of your staff at the door as well as the bartenders was outstanding.
