If you love theater, live music, the opera or perhaps the ballet, you can find it all in Portland, Oregon. This Pacific Northwest city offers a wide variety of performing arts to enjoy.

For those who love ballet, consider purchasing tickets for a performance of the Oregon Ballet Theatre. Among this season's offerings are Carmen, Giselle, and, of course, The Nutcracker. If you are traveling with children, the theater also has a special Children's Series of performances.

Another option is to enjoy a performance of The Oregon Symphony. The current season features everything from Mozart's Jupiter Symphony to A Natalie Cole Valentine. On September 1, the symphony will be showcasing its skills at a free performance at Waterfront Park.

Opera lovers are sure to enjoy at evening at the Portland Opera. The company performs a variety of classic operas. The current season includes performances of Madame Butterfly, The Marriage of Figaro and Candide to name a few.

There are also many companies performing live theater, such as Portland Center Stage which has many exciting performances lined up for its current season, including Rodgers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma!, as well as Anna Karenina, A Christmas Story and Shakespeare's Amazing Cymbeline.

When you book your Portland accommodations, consider a stay at the lovely Bellaterra Bed & Breakfast. Located in the historic Lair Hill neighborhood, this Portland inn offers five romantic and eclectic guest rooms, and each as a private bath.

Each of the guest rooms has been decorated with antiques which accentuate the home's original wood carvings and moldings. Guest baths feature intricate glass or stone tile work, and two include a clawfoot soaking tub. Several guest rooms offer a view of Mount Hood or the Willamette River.
