About The Otis A. Singletary Center for the Arts at the University of Kentucky
Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Lexington! The Otis A. Singletary Center for the Arts at the University of Kentucky first opened in 1979; it acquired its current name in 1987, in honor of Otis A. Singletary, the university’s eighth president and longtime advocate for the performing arts. The venue hosts hundreds of events each year, from student programs and community events to a variety of cultural and performing arts productions.
A part of the College of Fine Arts and essential to the UK School of Music, the Singletary Center for the Arts presents and hosts artistic, cultural and educational events for the University community, Lexington community and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
