Westben Arts Festival Theatre is set in a 400-seat barn that looks out onto a beautiful meadow with the chirping of the birds mingling with the sounds from singers and musicians from around the world performing everything from opera to Broadway, from jazz to chamber music. “Our dream at Westben is to connect with you through the wonderfully joyful experience of live music-making. Our hope is that you will experience music as you never have before. Westben is not your typical theatre experience.
