Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts

Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts

Highlighted by a soaring 150-foot, glass-vaulted rooftop, the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts is home to eight resident music and dance companies and presents a wide range of artists from around the globe. Verizon Hall, the center’s cello-shaped 2,500-seat main stage theater features adjustable acoustical panels and is home to The Philadelphia Orchestra. The smaller 650-seat Perelman Theater features a rotating stage that easily adapts to chamber music, dance and drama performances, while the SEI Innovation Studio provides a place for experimentation and new works.
