Greater Austin Performing Arts dba Long Center
- Entertainment Venues
The Long Center is an iconic, world-class performing arts center right in the heart of downtown Austin that serves more than 450,000 individuals annually. As Austin’s Creative Home, the Long Center is home to the Austin Symphony Orchestra, Austin Opera and Ballet Austin, and was built “by the community, for the community.”
Artistic excellence is a cornerstone of the Long Center, whether it be through supporting our resident companies and local artists, or bringing an impressive and diverse array of exceptional artists from all corners of the globe to Austin for the Long Center Presents program. In addition, as a nonprofit the Long Center collaborates with community partners, offers unique educational and outreach programs, hosts a variety of free events designed to engage a broad range of the public, subsidizes rental costs for emerging art groups, and provides tickets to charitable and community-based organizations.
