Over the years, crowds have been mesmerized by fine performances at the grand Opera House, located inside the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The Bolshoi Opera, the Ballet Nacional de Cuba and Italy's La Scala have all set this stage on fire. Year after year, it has welcomed talented artists from all corners of the world. Several important artistic events have also taken place at this elegant opera house. The much awaited Kennedy Center Honors (America's highest award for lifetime achievement in the arts) takes place at this very venue. Come by with your family or a group of friends or family and you're sure to enjoy every minute you spend here.
