Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Performing Arts

Performing Arts

Milwaukee is a cultural center offering a wealth of opportunities to attend plays, operas, symphonies and chamber music, thanks to an arts community that is well supported by metro-area residents.  Among comparable metro areas, only Nashville, Orlando, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Chicago have more performing arts groups per 100,000 people.  And no city, except Los Angeles, raises more private money for the arts than Milwaukee.

The city is home to the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, the Milwaukee Ballet, the Florentine Opera, the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre and the Skylight Theatre.
