Armstrong Park jewel that hosts fans of culture and Carnival, in the spirit of its great namesake. – In Short
This venue, located just outside the French Quarter and named for famous New Orleans gospel singer Mahalia Jackson, is an old but still-viable player on the city's performing arts scene: The New Orleans Opera Association calls the theater home during its production season, and national dance troupes presented by the New Orleans Ballet Association leap across the stage on a regular basis. The theater also hosts Mardi Gras balls and other special events for some of the city's oldest Carnival krewes. Fittingly, the Theatre of the Performing Arts' classic look--plush red seats and chandeliers overhead--makes every event an occasion.
