Cesar Pelli's monolithic new arts hub for Miami finally opened in October 2006. It may be one of the ugliest buildings the architect (best known for the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur) has ever built, but what saves it is its technological merit: Wrapped in a soundproofing and reverb chamber, the hall is essentially tucked inside another building to prevent any ambient noise from polluting the performances. The showy, crenellated Art Deco tower that squats in the courtyard between the two main buildings is the only remnant of the Sears store that once stood here. A 2,400-seat ballet and opera house and 2,200-capacity concert hall hosts four resident companies (Concert Association of Florida, Florida Grand Opera, Miami City Ballet, and New World Symphony), plus a sellout Best of Broadway season. Check the event listings on the Web site for the 200-seat black box studio theater; like the other venues here, it brings in everything from jazz concerts to experimental theater and stand-up comedy—and tickets start at $25. Australian artistic director Justin Macdonnell also oversees the Miami Made program, which funds city artists' ideas from script to stage. Parking isn't easy to come by in the area, so buy a $15 parking ticket bundled with your performance tickets.
