The huge chandeliers, floating staircases and comfy, over-sized seats enhance the experience. The Meymandi Concert Hall is an acoustic titan and home to the North Carolina Symphony. It also plays host to renowned musicians and performers from around the globe. The Fletcher Opera Theater hosts performances by such groups as the Carolina Ballet and The National Opera Company. The Kennedy Theater seats 170 and offers a unique experience found in the venue's nontraditional performances.
