Catch a wide variety of orchestra, dance, variety, and English, French and Indigenous theatre shows at the only bilingual, multidisciplinary performing arts centre in Canada.

The National Arts Centre (NAC) in Ottawa collaborates with artists and arts organizations across Canada to stage artistically adventurous shows in Ottawa and to support the arts across the country.

Check out the NAC's Scene festivals and NAC Presents series to catch the latest work by established and emerging Canadian artists, or attend a Broadway blockbuster. Even if you're not attending a show, enjoy a snack in the sunny café in the centre's new glass atrium or dinner in the elegant 1 Elgin restaurant. The NAC also hosts free events for people of all ages.
