Beautiful venue to experience a full orchestra. We had tier 2, side, left seats, last row, and had a fantastic view of the whole stage. The acoustics are excellent. In fact, you can even hear the people on stage speak to the audience without a microphone. Any show in this venue would be worthwhile to see. No obstructions, no echo.

I go every year to their Broadway Across America tours of the popular shows. We often see 4-5 shows each season. The opera house has good views in most tiers, although the box seats are my favorite. The venue has great acoustics and the shows are spectacular. I have taken my kids for family events and other non-broadway shows like... More

This place is absolutely gorgeous! Went to see the Dirty Dancing show & it was awesome. Bathrooms were close by & clean. Didn't wait long to get a drink at the bars. Some bars only take cash & at the main bar takes credit cards. Staff were very friendly & helpful. Good experience! 👍

I was treated to a performance of The Nutcracker this Christmas at the Arsht Center. The venue is beautiful and is definitely a welcome addition to downtown Miami. The theater is well-thought out. All the seats, no matter where you're seated, seem to have a good view of the stage. Food is pricey, and depending on the ballet or performance... More

Beautiful architecture, great service but the drinks and food sold there are way too expensive! Also for the musical that we watched (Dirty Dancing) the volume was good during the songs but a bit low to understand the speeches from the third tier where we had our seats.

We were excited to get tickets for the Louis CK comedy show here at the center last week.... our seats wound up being on the fourth level. What I want to say is the acoustics are so bad if you're on that fourth level especially towards the rear of the auditoriumyou should not waste your money. It is so difficult... More

For many decades, Miami had to suffer with the ancient Dade County Auditorium for operas, plays, concerts, etc. putting us officially into hick town, bush league status. Then they finally built this beautiful, ample, state of the art facility that was long overdue. The seating, acoustics, stage, lighting etc. are all top notch. The concessions are also nice, not too... More
