The Kennedy Center

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Timone on May 9, 2002

There's lots to see at the Kennedy Center - take the Metro to Foggy Bottom and then take the free shuttle bus to the Center. It's trip to do even if you're not seeing a performance as there are guided tours of all the concert halls and the top floor restaurant offers great views of D.C.

I went to the opera, they were very good performances by the Washington Opera, whose musical director is Placido Domingo.

The Kennedy Center is also home to the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington, who ironically I saw just last weekend (04-05-02) in England, again a great performance with a top resident conductor, Leonard Slatkin. If classical music isn't your thing don't panic there are many contempory performances available in the Terrace Theater and Eisenhower Theater. Check the local free papers for details of free music at the center,
