Wolf Trap Farm Park for the Performing Arts

Filene Center II


The acclaimed PBS-TV series “Live From Wolf Trap” originates from this internationally acclaimed outdoor summer theatre, which annually features the world’s best-known concert artists and popular entertainers, such as the New York City Opera and The National Symphony Orchestra.

Completed in 1984, two years after fire destroyed the original outdoor auditorium, Filene Center II is a multipurpose theatre with one of the country’s largest stages. It has substantially enlarged backstage and rehearsal facilities and seating for 3,700 patrons under cover and 3,000 more on the outdoor lawn.

FDA designed and specified equipment for the rebuilt theatre, from stage lighting and rigging systems to an innovative 80,000-pound orchestra shell which can be rapidly set up and completely removed from the stage when not in use.
