Performing Arts

The Cleveland Museum of Art’s Performing Arts Series is robust and wide-ranging, spanning classical and contemporary music, global music traditions, as well as dance and film. The series is recognized internationally and stands out in the Northeast Ohio region for its vitality and the excitement it brings to a crowded musical landscape. These performances regularly complement special exhibitions, illuminate the permanent collection, and take unique advantage of the museum’s performance spaces and architecture—often arranged in collaboration or interdisciplinary fashion with fellow curators.
