Kennedy Center Opera House

June 4 - 9, 2024

Jewels is brilliantly unique: a full-length, three-act, plotless ballet that uses the music of three very different composers. Balanchine was inspired by the artistry of jewelry designer Van Cleef & Arpels, and chose music that perfectly reflects three entirely different dance forms, unified by the elegance of the jewel theme and Barbara Karinska's opulent costumes.

Bye Bye Birdie

Eisenhower Theater

June 7 - 16, 2024

Bye Bye Birdie was one of the defining musicals of the early 60s. Incorporating the booming rock 'n' roll scene into its storyline with cultural touchstones like Ed Sullivan and a thinly veiled take-off of Elvis, it premiered on Broadway in 1960 and three years later and it was adapted for the silver screen, with Dyke Van Dyke reprising his role alongside Janet Leigh and Ann-Margret.

Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

venue exterior

Built in 1971 to realize the late President Kennedy's ambitions to bring culture to the American public, the Center has seen over 300 productions across ballet, theater and concerts created and stage at the complex. December 2014 saw the start of an ambitious expansion project that would reopen access from the Center to the Potomac River, as well as easier access to lower Georgetown and provide more space for visitors and performers to engage with.
