Keller Auditorium

The Keller Auditorium is home to most of Portland Opera’s performances and Broadway shows. The Keller (originally known as the Civic Auditorium) was built in 1917 and completely renovated in 1968. Throughout the years, it has been the ‘workhorse’ theater for the city of Portland, hosting many performing arts events each year.
