“Great place to see an opera!”
Review of Grand Opera House

Grand Opera House
Ranked #3 of 58 things to do in Wilmington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 July 2018

I had the pleasure of seeing Puccini's Suor Angelica (Sister Angelica) there. Intimate venue that's been restored/maintained in the ways you'd hope these old venues are. Lot's of great dining near by. There are also a lot of friendly safety patrol people always around (look for the yellow shirts) if you need directions or are single and looking for someone to walk you to your car after an evening performance.

Great time ! Had lots of fun. The anticipation to see if my name was called to "come on down" was exciting! Staff was very helpful. Not a bad seat in the house. Would definitely go again.

In the 20+ years that we've lived in Wilmington, Delaware we've enjoyed a nice variety of family-friendly performances at The Grand Opera House. It's a sweet gem in the heart of Wilmington's vibrant Market Street area that -- well maintained and attracts great shows.

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.
