From its very beginning, The Smith Center was envisioned as a world-class performing arts center that would develop and present the best and brightest in a broad range of first-rate programming and unite the residents of our community.
This cultural complex will enable Southern Nevada to take its place on an international stage, celebrating artistic excellence, education and culture from around the world.
The ambition to create one of the nation’s leading performing art centers led The Smith Center’s design team to visit venues across North America and Europe in 2007, where they studied some of the world’s finest opera houses, concert halls and performance venues. After they toured venues including Palais Garnier in Paris, the Musikverein in Vienna and La Scala in Milan, they came together to design The Smith Center.
This venue hosts fantastic events like Jazz Roots: Brazil meets Funk.
