Incredible artists, commissioned works, extraordinary collaborations, and unforgettable performances ... it’s all waiting for you at the 17th Annual Virginia Arts Festival. For 17 years, this acclaimed festival has brought the world’s great artists to performance venues throughout the Hampton Roads area, making this beautiful region - already beloved for its beaches, pristine waterways, wildlife, and historical attractions that date back to the earliest days of our country - a cultural destination for travelers from around the world.
The big event is the Virginia International Tattoo. Presented in the grand tradition of the world's oldest tattoos, this Tattoo is an all-American show of patriotism and pride - one international sensation. The dynamic cast of more than 850 hails from several countries. The Tattoo has something for everyone. Count on marching bands, massed pipes and drums, military drill teams, Celtic dancers, choirs and as always, surprise guests!
Other notable events include a live broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Kellor. Be a part of the audience at The Ted Constant Convocation Center on the campus of Old Dominion University in Norfolk.
Coppelia performed by Birmingham Royal Ballet is receiving great acclaim. Daily Express (UK) calls it, "mischievous and vivid," while The Stage (UK) says it's, "staged and so beautifully danced ... Cheer for BRB, they are at their peak." See the performance at Chrysler Hall in Norfolk.
An annual family favorite, the Flying Proms Symphonic Air Show Spectacular will showcase the beauty of vintage aircraft flying maneuvers accompanied by the Virginia Symphony Orchestra. You can see this show in Virginia Beach.
