Fodor's Review

The main venue for theater, dance, music, and the arts in Belize City is Bliss Center for the Performing Arts, which seats 600. It's rare to have more than one or two shows a week at the center, and most of these are local performances—a children's dance group or a young singer's debut concert. Concert organizers try to bring in performing talent from around the country, and on a Saturday night you could hear a Mayan singer from Toledo or a marimba band from Benque Viejo del Carmen. Most shows are in English, with Creole often mixed in. Ticket prices vary but typically range from BZ$10 to BZ$40. The Bliss Center is named after Baron Bliss, who died in 1926 while on his yacht off Belize City; he never set foot in Belize but donated his fortune to the country.
