Noted in National Geographic Traveler for its superb acoustics, the 1881 Opera House was an important stop on the old Vaudeville circuit. Today's schedule is diverse, from folk, rock, classical, and jazz. Recent renovations include a new steel roof, sound system and theater seats. Relaxed, intimate and all seats have a great view. The Opera House is located in the heart of Jim Thorpe's historic district, just a quick stroll to pubs, restaurants, lodging and shops.

During a recent daytrip getaway, my wife and I happened to attend a show at this venue. Intimate and welcoming, the the Opera House is a great place to see an act. The drinks were priced reasonably. We would see another act here again.

In looking for something to do in Jim Thorpe we saw an advertisement for a band called Back to the Garden who played the music and songs from Woodstock. We inquired with Steve the manager about the theater if there was handicapped seating available ....More

Saw impersonators who did all Everly Brothers songs. They are from Los Angeles and are willing to perform at a smaller place. Opera House is older but well maintained.

Our group was two couples who love music and quirky performances. I thought the act billed, "40 story radio tower" would be sort of like The Prairie Home companion, and I think that's what they were going for. There was a featured band and then...More

The old opera house has been wonderfully restored. Great sound and lighting. The place has a "homey" feel, even though you're there for a live concert.

Beautiful old building that still needs some inside restoration work. Orchestra, mezzanine, and balcony. Stage is raised about 4 ft so the flat-seated orchestra has good view from anywhere. They need to invest in some additional/upgraded sound equipment but not bad. Saw a great blues...More

This looks like a really cool venue. They didn't have any shows when we were there but the staff was nice enough to let us look all around and give us some history. They even sold us a t-shirt.

Acoustically, they are all good. If you want a great overall view, balcony seats are great, too but truly, tutti soon benissimo! Spero vederli!
