About The Kennedy Center - Opera House

The Opera House is the second-largest theater in the Center, with 2,300 seats. It was designed for ballet, opera, and musical theater. Over the years, the Opera House has welcomed dozens of the world’s great dance and opera companies and has hosted some of the most important artistic events of the last quarter century. With its distinctive red and gold silk curtain, a gift from Japan, and the exquisite Lobmeyr crystal chandelier, a gift from Austria, the Opera House makes an elegant setting for the annual Kennedy Center Honors, the nations highest award for lifetime achievement in the arts.

Kennedy Center parking is astronomical. For half the cost, you can park across the street in the Watergate underground parking lot. It closes at midnight.
