Adrienne Arsht Center Review

Culture vultures and other artsy types are drawn to this stunning performing arts center, which includes the 2,400-seat Ziff Ballet Opera House, the 2,200-seat Knight Concet Hall, the Carnival Studio black-box Theater, and an outdoor Plaza for the Arts. Throughout the year, you'll find top-notch performances by local and national touring groups, including Broadway hits like Wicked and Jersey Boys, intimate music concerts, and showstopping ballet. Think of it as a sliver of savoir faire to temper Miami's often-over-the-top vibe. The massive development was designed by architect César Pelli, and stands as the largest American performing arts center constructed since the 1980s. Complimentary one-hour tours of the Arsht Center, highlighting the architecture and its public art, are offered every Saturday and Monday at noon. Restaurateur Barton G. presents his pretheater dining extravaganza at the Arsht Center's restaurant, Prelude by Barton G., with a 2-course, $29 prix-fixe menu ( 305/357–7900 www.preludebybartong.com).
