Memorial Auditorium at Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts

  • 2 E. South St.
    Raleigh, NC 27601

Opened in 1932, and renovated in 2014, Memorial Auditorium is the crown jewel of N.C. performing arts. Over the years, this richly historic theater has played host to a dazzling spectrum of artists and performances. Just a sample of the list quickly becomes dizzying: Sinatra, Gillespie, Baryshnikov, Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, Sarah Vaughn, Itzhak Perlman, Natalie Cole and Prince. Broadway blockbusters like Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera, Disney’s The Lion King, Jersey Boys, Miss Saigon and Rent have also been staged here. Eighty-thousand square feet of stage, house, rehearsal hall, lobbies and public areas make Memorial Auditorium one of the most decisively versatile facilities in the Southeast.
