The Saenger Theatre is popular for hosting  popular international artists  and is proudly called the ‘Grand Dame of the South’.

The theatre originally established in the 1920’s had its share of damage during the Hurricane Katrina and was reopened in 2013. Today, the theatre’s state of the art design, renewed amenities and a long list of popular performances- all make this place irresistible when in New Orleans.

Saenger Theatre, New Orleans Reviews

  • 5 stars and then some!!! I have attended numerous concerts from a variety of venues in my life, but have never, EVER experienced such opulence in a venue as the Saenger! Before this, I thought the Shreveport Municipal Center (the home of the renowned Louisiana Hayride) was nice, but in retrospect what makes that place special is the history that happened there in the day of Elvis and others in the days of Sun records. Downright trashy compared to the Saenger. Then again the performer we came to see, the incomparable Tony Bennett contributed significantly to the overall experience. Kudos Saenger! Looking forward to our next experience here with you all!!!

  • This theater is pretty and has solid acoustics. We had mid balcony center area seats and they were perfect for the Star Wars in concert featuring the LPO. I've yet to catch a touring show here, but my partner has season tickets and goes to a lot of them. She thoroughly enjoys the venue. My biggest complaint is they sometimes allow Ticketmaster... Which pretty much doubles ticket prices. Either way, catch a show when and if you can!

  • A decent sized theatre full of history, jaw dropping architecture and comfy chairs. Saw Evanescence live in 2016 here. Awesome acoustics and easy to get around. Upside: Public cable cars available right outside the venue Downside: Vendors and concession's are pricy.

  • This is a beautiful theater within walking distance to the French Quarter. It has been restored completely and it is absolutely gorgeous. There are multiple bars, the bar upstairs is usually weigh less crowded than the bars downstairs. Check the website for the acts that they have coming.

  • Nicely done. The renovations and retrofitting of this venue turned out amazing. I was here to watch Yes. Well ARW! State of the art audio and lighting. Confortable seats. Grand bathrooms and efficient bars. It's amazing walking trough that gallery outside the theater not knowing what you will find inside.
