Entertainment & Performaing Arts
Delight in live theater, musicals, staged readings, concerts, dance, workshops, and more at The Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck (845-876-3080), the Bardavon Opera House (845-473-5288) in nearby Poughkeepsie, or the Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson. Designed by acclaimed architect Frank Gehry, the Fisher Center is worth a visit for the structure alone! For innovative dance performances, the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center in Tivoli is a must.

The performance space features a stage that equals that of the Metropolitan Opera House, but with a mere 160 seats and stadium-style seating of only 7 rows, you are guaranteed an intimate dance experience. Film buffs will enjoy the breadth and depth of the celluloid offerings at Upstate Films (845-473-5288), which features international releases, current art-house hits, and the classics. Or for those seeking an intimate musical experience check out Levon Helm's Midnight Rambles. Also in Woodstock is The Bearsville Theater.
