Duke Performances explores the full range of the performing arts, from the traditional to the forward-leaning, embracing programming from diverse cultures and disciplines through presentation and education. Duke Performances features programming that serves to celebrate the finest traces of culture incubated in North Carolina and the South, while simultaneously embracing Duke University's international profile and status as a renowned research institution.

Duke Performances is working, through several new programming initiatives, to rethink the manner in which an institution of higher learning facilitates the interaction between community and the arts. Duke Performances provides outstanding cultural programming, support for the University's academic departments, and an opportunity for our students to see the finest performing artists in the world for the best price in the country.

Duke Performances is committed to providing the highest quality experience for both artists and audiences. Our mandate is to maintain a balance between our regional responsibility, artistic integrity, and the educational mission of Duke University.
