Attended Joe Biden's "Promise Me Dad" presentation at the Grand Opera House last week and though the venue is beautiful, I was sorely disappointed with the audio. For the first 35 minutes of the 1+ hour presentation, it was very difficult to understand either of the speakers on stage. Finally, smeone came in from side stage and gave Vice President Biden a handheld microphone. Only then was the audience able to clearly hear what he and his asscoiate on stage were saying. Not Good. You would think this kind of thing would be worked out prior to a major presntation by the former Vice President and favorite son of Delaware.

Great place to see a show. Do't think there is a bad seat in the house. Beautiful architecture and well maintained.

This is a wonderful venue. Historic, beautifully restored and maintained. Safe and provides an intimate performance setting. I have seen performers from Ray Charles to Buddy Guy to The Association. Performers seem to love the setting and it always becomes a special night since it is so small. Small with beautiful acoustics. The entire fron ot the building is ornamental cast iron. Truly a one of a kind place.

What a gorgeous opera house, truly gorgeous and with amazing acoustics to boot. The front facade is cast iron, centrally located in downtown Wilmington. We had the fortunate opportunity to see an opera here and the Grand Opera House certainly added to the experience.
