Opened in July 2011, thanks to generous support from Shaw Communications, the Shaw Amphitheatre is capable of seating audiences of over 1,600. The spectacular venue boasts expansive views of the Bourgeau and Sulphur mountain ranges, and features the latest in lighting, sound, and digital technology.
The Shaw Amphitheatre will inspire experimentation in outdoor performance, provide exceptional learning opportunities for Banff Centre theatre work studies, and offer an unparalleled performance venue for music, opera, dance and more. Artists will take full advantage of the creative possibilities that the Shaw Amphitheatre offers — and audiences will experience what is surely one of the beautiful outdoor performance venues. In the world.
