Music & Performing Arts
Our love for the performing arts is truly engrained into Twin Cities' culture. Besides bringing in Broadway tours and international stars, the Twin Cities themselves are home to more than 78 theater companies, 20 dance companies and two professional orchestras. From spectacular operas and awe-inspiring orchestral performances to cutting-edge plays and contemporary dance, standing ovations are the norm here.
