The Smith Center for the Performing Arts
This high-quality performance arts center, located at 361 Symphony Park Avenue in Las Vegas, was built in 32 months and boasts beautiful architecture imagined by The Smith Center's design team after their visit to the finest world venues across North America and Europe. From its inviting Grand Lobby with hand-selected marble from Verona, Italy to the center's Reynolds Hall with the capacity to seat 2,050 people and up to 100 musicians, The Smith Center is a world-class venue that the Nevada Ballet Theatre is more than delighted to call our new performance home.
