Stephanie Blythe, mezzo-soprano
Craig Terry, piano
- Apr 21 2014
“With each performance the American mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe gives, it becomes increasingly apparent that a once-in-a-generation opera singer has arrived.” So said The New York Times and here’s your chance to see why she has become a force to be reckoned with in an operatic repertory from Handel to Wagner’s Ring Cycle.

An evening with Nico Muhly - April 25, 2014
If American contemporary music has a “composer of the moment,” it’s Nico Muhly, whose incidental music was one of the highlights of McCarter’s recent production of The Winter’s Tale. At the young age of 31, he has already created a wide scope of work for every possible genre you can imagine including orchestras, recitalists, dance companies, film, and even pop groups. In his Berlind concert, he will be joined by two frequent collaborators, Sam Amidon (banjo and voice) and Nadia Sirota (viola).

McCarter Theatre Center Located in beautiful historic Princeton , NJ , Tony Award-winning McCarter Theater Center is recognized as one of the nation’s leading regional theatre companies. The Center is home to two distinctive auditoriums, allowing McCarter to both present and produce a wide range of performances. From Theater, Classical Music and Jazz, to Dance, Pop, and World events, McCarter has it all.

The Matthews Theatre Auditorium

The magnificent 1100 seat Matthews Theatre , located in the main building, was recently renovated thanks to the generosity of Princeton University . The new handcrafted imported lighting fixtures, rich velvet covered seats, new carpeting, and a welcoming color scheme, maintain the original dignity and charm of the 75 year old house. The auditorium, which includes Premium Orchestra, Front and Rear Orchestra, Front and Rear Balcony, and Box/Grand Tier sections, has superb acoustics and sightlines from any seat and boasts state-of-the-art computerized sound and lighting systems. Some of the greatest performers in the world have graced this stage including such artists as James Stewart, George Balanchine, Lucille Ball, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr., The Grateful Dead, Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Dustin Hoffman, Bruce Springsteen, Arthur Miller, and Luciano Pavarotti, just to name a few.


auditorium-berlind

The Berlind Theatre Auditorium

This dynamic new contemporary 360-seat performance space, which opened for McCarter’s 2003-2004 season, was designed by award-winning architect Hugh Hardy. The auditorium features stepped stadium seating that allows excellent visibility of the stage from all seats for an intimate and unique theatrical experience. Rows are lettered A through Q, so every location is equivalent to sitting in the front orchestra in the Matthews theater, and are numbered in the same way as the Matthews. There are 4 entrances on two levels and two center aisles with handrails to ease the flow of patrons locating their seats.

The Room in the Berlind

The Berlind Theatre also houses a large rehearsal hall that doubles as a 75-seat flexible performance space. New, experimental, and works in process are presented during the course of the season in this theater-within-a-theater. These readings and small productions are open to the general public free or at a nominal ticket price.


The lockwood and west lobbies

The Matthews Theatre has two beautiful and spacious lobbies that can accommodate groups wishing to host a fundraiser, reception, or celebration in conjunction with a theater performance. Please refer to the GROUP SERVICES section of the website for more details.
