Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts - Raleigh, NC

Located in Raleigh, North Carolina, Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts encompasses four versatile performance spaces that aim to create an unforgettable experience for all who visit. It is home to Memorial Auditorium, Fletcher Opera Theater, Meymandi Concert Hall and Kennedy Theatre. The venues can accommodate audiences of up to 2,323 people.

The historic Memorial Auditorium serves as the centerpiece of the complex with its atrium lobby, twin floating staircases and elegant Doric columns. Since opening in 1932, it has presented performances by Frank Sinatra and Prince and hosted traveling Broadway productions of The Lion King and Rent. It’s home to the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra and regularly features productions by Broadway Series South.

Versatility permeates the center, with the Fletcher Opera Theater focusing on opera and dance and the Meymandi Auditorium welcoming musical performances that benefit from its rich, robust acoustics. The 170-seat Kennedy Theatre is a unique, experimental space that promises an intimate and interactive experience.

Nestled in the heart of downtown Raleigh, Duke Energy Center is conveniently located just five blocks from the state capitol. There are multiple parking lots within walking distance that serve the venue.

Visitors looking to experience the city should stay within the Raleigh Beltline. There are many top-notch hotels nearby, and the restaurant scene is varied and vibrant. For a nightcap, Fox Liquor Bar offers high-quality cocktails in a basement speakeasy environment. Families should plan to tour the North Carolina Museum of Natural History and ride the train at Pullen Park.
