Known as one of Orlando’s prime theaters, we are proud to host the fifth World Ballet Competition in this historic venue of the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center.

  • The building was constructed in 1926 for approximately $175,000 and originally known as the Municipal Auditorium, or “Muni Aud,” to Orlando natives.
  • After an extensive renovation in 1978, the theatre was renamed in dedication to Mayor Robert Carr’s service to the City of Orlando.
  • Today the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center “hosts some of the largest and most popular Broadway and theatrical touring productions in the country.”
  • Notable artists haved included Yanni and Itzhak Perlman.
