The Saratoga Performing Arts Center is home to an acoustically ideal amphitheater, the Spa Little Theatre, the Charles R. Wood Gazebo Stage and The Jazz Bar — all nestled in an idyllic park setting surrounded by hiking trails, geysers and natural mineral springs.
Our main stage has a 25,000 person capacity with sheltered seats for 5,200 people and a sloping lawn for an additional 20,000 people. The stage is home to New York City Ballet and Philadelphia Orchestra performances in addition to shows by Live Nation. Our amphitheater also hosts the popular “SPAC on Stage” series.
An intimate, 500-seat theatre showcasing our Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Opera Saratoga, the Spa Little Theatre is located at 19 Roosevelt Drive, across from the Hall of Springs.
The Charles R. Wood Gazebo Stage on the SPAC grounds is known as our “discovery stage” for the Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival. In addition it hosts our “Caffe Lena @ SPAC” concert series, student music and dance presentations, and multi-stage music and arts festivals.
An elegant space located within the Hall of Springs, the Jazz Bar is a popular dining area prior to performances. Following select classical programs, it transforms into an after-hours social scene featuring live jazz music and dancing.
