Long Center for the Performing Arts

701 W. Riverside Dr.
Austin, TX, 78704, United States
TEL: (512) 474-5664

On the edge of Lady Bird Lake, the Long Center for the Performing Arts houses the city's ballet company and symphony orchestra. The performance hall, designed by Nelson Partners and Zeidler Partnership Architects, is in tune with Austin's unconventional spirit — 70 percent of the structure was made from recycled materials, including the gigantic concrete ring that encircles the central building like a halo. On the lineup this summer: Austin's Chamber Music Festival, the Austin Shakespeare Festival, and free weekend symphony performances on the public terrace.
