Kennedy Center reopens to audiencemain
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts announces the first performance in front of a live audience on one of the Center’s famed stages in more than six months. Featuring two of America’s most celebrated vocalists, Renée Fleming and Vanessa Williams, the concert launches the innovative On Stage at the Opera House series, designed to safely bring back live performing arts to the National Cultural Center. The configuration of the theater has been re-imagined to place the artists on a 30 x 24-foot stage extension built over the orchestra-level seating area. An invited audience of 40 people will enter through the wide loading doors on the Center’s front plaza and will sit in physically-distanced pairs on the stage facing the iconic red interior of the hall.
