The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is the premiere place in Washington D.C. to see a veritable cornucopia of incredible entertainment and culture. In addition to the Eisenhower Theatre, a concert hall, and several smaller theaters, they also have the Kennedy Center Opera House, which is not only culturally significant, but beautiful to look at. The interior design features a large crystal chandelier that was given to the center by Austria, and a gorgeous red and gold curtain that was a gift from Japan. Not only can you get Kennedy Center Opera House tickets to see the Washington National Opera, the facility is also the home of the famous Kennedy Center Honors, awarded annually to those who have dedicated their lives to the performing arts. The Kennedy Center Opera House seats 2,350 patrons and has orchestra level seating, plus two tiers, and one tier of box seats.
