In 1998, local businessman W. Jerome Frautschi made a breathtaking, multimillion dollar commitment for the development of a cultural arts district in downtown Madison. The Overture Foundation was established to solve the space needs of the city's major arts organizations, and internationally famous architect Cesar Pelli designed the project.
From Mr. Frautschi’s astounding generosity, a state-of-the-art civic cultural center has emerged, one that successfully integrates more than a dozen new theatres, galleries, and elegant performance and meeting spaces while preserving the classic elegance of Madison’s historic Capitol Theater, now returned to its original name.
