Kentucky Performing Arts brings the finest in music, dance, theater and more to Kentucky! Our venues, The Kentucky Center, Brown Theatre and Old Forester's Paristown Hall, are the primary performance spaces for the Louisville Orchestra, Kentucky Opera, Louisville Ballet, StageOne Family Theatre and PNC Broadway in Louisville, as well as a host of community theaters and our own Kentucky Center Presents performances.
PNC Broadway in Louisville
“We are beyond thrilled that Broadway is back!” said Leslie Broecker, President of PNC Broadway in Louisville. “We were able to bring back two long-awaited returns and four Louisville premieres this season, all of which provide a kaleidoscope of cultural experiences and themes. This programming also creates an opportunity to expose more youth and underprivileged students to the arts in 2022-2023 and we take that responsibility to heart.”
Kentucky Opera was founded in 1952 and designated the State Opera of Kentucky in 1982. Kentucky Opera seeks to reach and reflect our entire region through opera, promoting a more empathetic, compassionate, and just community with the power of the arts.
Currently under the leadership of Artistic Director Robert Curran, Louisville Ballet is now recognized as one of the most highly-regarded regional ballet companies in the country. Known for its versatility and commitment to new work as well as its core connection to classical ballet, Louisville Ballet embodies the belief that ballet is a living, breathing and relevant art form.
The Louisville Orchestra performs unique and adventurous programs to capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences through music. Offering dramatic new commissions, large-scale repertoire in creative formats, beloved traditional masterpieces, and a diversity of popular music, the LO entertains, inspires, and celebrates the exceptional talents of our own community while building on a distinctive historic legacy.
StageOne Family Theatre
StageOne introduces young people to theater that is personally relevant, age-appropriate, inspirational, and educational. Through high-quality professional productions, in-school education programs, and community-based classes and camps, StageOne uses theater to serve our community.
