The Lied Center of Kansas opened on Sept. 28, 1993 and was built through the generosity of the Lied Foundation Trust and the Lawrence community. It is dedicated to Ernst F. Lied’s parents, Ernst M. and Ida K. Lied. The inaugural performance of The Secret Garden set the stage for the important role The Lied Center now plays for KU, Lawrence and the people of Kansas. Today, the Lied Center is the home of two outstanding performance spaces: the main auditorium, with a capacity just under 2,000, and the Pavilion, a flexible space with seating for 200.
