In the heart of the city known as the Live Music Capital of the World, The University of Texas at Austin offers a dizzying array of arts and culture opportunities. Creativity, expression and artistic exploration thrive on our campus, with the bright and exciting pulse of Austin coursing through it.

Whether you're pursuing a degree in fine and performing arts or interested in art, music, theatre and dance outside of class, this is the place for you.
All year long, Texas Performing Arts offers a diverse, eclectic season of music, theatre, dance and conversation. Performances showcase world-famous acts from around the globe, Broadway in Austin productions, and work by students, faculty and staff.
