Arts and Entertainment
As Portland has rapidly grown in recent years, so has its arts scene become more diverse and sophisticated. The traditional institutions of symphony, opera, and classical ballet are strong, and contemporary dance and theater are represented by an eclectic bunch of adventurous companies.
In addition to the more formal music and theater listings below, there’s a very active summer festival itinerary that ranges from the superb Chamber Music Northwest series to blues and jazz festivals.
