Plans for an updated amphitheater at the Chautauqua Institution are taking shape, and construction permits are in hand, but a legal action will be stalling the progress. A statement issued by the venue indicates that a lawsuit has been filed in State Supreme Court that seeks to halt the project. The Institution counters that they have complied with all requirements in their planning and that they have acted in accordance with the mission of Chautauqua.

They remain confident that the project will move forward.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
