      Description

      The Benedum Center for the Performing Arts is the most popular venue in Pittsburgh's Cultural District, and has a rich history of entertaining the city's residents. Not only is the historic theater home to the Pittsburgh's Opera, Ballet Theatre, Symphony, and Civic Light Opera, but it also schedules some of the biggest names in music who continue to stop by year after year. The Benedeum Center is one of the most popular places in Pittsburgh for music and performing arts, and has become beloved by audiences yearning to be entertained.

      The concert hall was originally built as a movie palace called the Stanley Theatre in 1928. At the time, it was the largest movie theater in Western Pennsylvania and entertained audiences throughout the depression. The Stanley Theatre was turned into a music venue in 1997 and scheduled rock bands like The Grateful Dead and Bob Marley, who performed his very last live concert at the concert hall. After massive renovations in 1987, the venue was turned into a full performing arts center, retaining its original 4,700 pound chandelier. Since that time, the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts has combined its legacy of mainstream music with the performing arts to provide audiences with a popular, multi-faceted venue.

      Fans of the ballet, theater, orchestra, symphony, and mainstream acts have come to call the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts home. Check the schedule above to see upcoming performers at the concert hall and prepare for a night of unparalleled entertainment.
