In 2001, Robert and Margrit Mondavi gave $10 million to help build the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, which opened in 2002. It is now recognized as a regional performing arts landmark.
The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts presents nearly 200 performances each year, making it one of Northern California’s premier arts destinations. Performances include some of the best talent from around the world and performances by both professional and student artists in music, dance, theater and spoken word.
The Mondavi Center’s main performance space, the 1,800-seat Jackson Hall, features next-generation theatrical equipment and superb acoustics, making it a favorite for the world’s greatest orchestras, jazz bands, and dance and theater companies. The center’s 200-seat Vanderhoef Studio Theatre provides high-tech space for rehearsals, film screenings and intimate musical experiences.
