4 Cool Cultural Venues in Tulsa

July 28, 2015


If you're looking for a little culture this weekend in Tulsa, maybe somewhere to escape the maddening crowds, these four venues are for you! These picks are just the things: not too touristy, not too crowded, cultured, sophisticated (but not overly stuffy), and fun! They are just what you need to keep summer interesting.

The Tulsa Ballet

The Tulsa Ballet began in 1956. Today, more than 40,000 visitors take in its shows. You can purchase a season subscription or simply come for one show. They also offer ballet classes for both adults and youth! Ever dreamed of being a ballet dancer? Well, now you can learn to dance like one!

The Tulsa Opera

In addition to the ballet, you might want to head to the opera! The Tulsa Opera is all about 'Women on the Verge' this year, and again, you can purchase season tickets, a mini-season of tickets, or single event passes. The Opera performs at a number of different venues around Tulsa, and tickets can be purchased online.

The Tulsa Symphony

Another way to experience Tulsa's culture is through its music. The Tulsa Symphony is the place to “hear the unexpected.” When you attend a main stage performance, you can enjoy a free pre-concert conversation with the guest conductors and a free post-concert reception with the musicians. They offer a Classics series, a Pops series, a Chamber series, as well as Symphony in the Park. Check online for a schedule and ticket prices.

Tulsa Performing Arts Center

The Tulsa Performing Arts Center first opened its doors in 1977 and the city run Center has been providing top-notch entertainment ever since. This is the place to listen to a concert, attend a Pulitzer Prize winning play, see Broadway shows and much more! Talk about culture—there really is something for everyone on their stage. From musicals to performance art to comedy, you will surely find someone coming soon that you will want to snag tickets to see!
