The arts are a universal language that unites everyone no matter where you come from. Originating from the classical period, the performing arts are a visual expression of the body and the voice. Don't miss out on some of the best performances in Northern Virginia that range from dance to musicals to Broadway shows and many other theatrical performances.
Fairfax County is home to some of the best theatre venues in the country, such as George Mason University's Center for the Arts (home to the critically acclaimed Fairfax Symphony) and The Filene Center at Wolf Trap (a magical outdoor venue for world-class performances of every genre, set on land owned by the National Park Service).
