This Frank Gehry-designed building opened a little over a year ago, and the reviews are spot-on:
As an indoor performance space, it's a sight to behold -- and to hear, when the resident academy symphony is playing. The fare ranges from classical to very out-there modern. One recent performance included a poetry reading.
But perhaps the most novel aspect is the high-tech features, one of which includes free outdoor concerts in the grassy park in front of the building, where you can listen to and watch the performance broadcast on a huge wall in front of the building.
Plus, on certain nights when there's no live performance, the center shows movies for free. (We caught a recent showing of 1990's "Ghost.") It's like going to an old-fashioned drive in, except here you sit on the grass or in chairs you bring with you. Some people picnic. It's a great idea.
