ABOUT THIS THEATRE

Description
From classical music to modern dance, yearly family traditions to hot concerts, the world's best artists come to the Ohio Theatre. The breath-taking details (including the 21 foot high chandelier!) and opulent Spanish-Baroque architecture and design make any night out at the Ohio an event to remember. With more than 100 CAPA shows a year, touring artists, and a variety of performances by the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, BalletMet, and Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Columbus, the Ohio Theatre is the state's busiest performing arts facility. The Ohio Theatre's lush interior, excellent acoustics, and state-of-the-art stage facilities have made it a favorite of leading CAPA-sponsored performers including Carole King, Julie Andrews, Yo-Yo Ma, Yanni, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Kenny G. Canadian Brass, Liza Minnelli, John Denver, Kodo Drummers of Japan, the Boston Pops, Garrison Keillor, Lyle Lovett, Itzhak Perlman, and Dan Fogelberg.
