“A beautiful venue for live performances ”
Review of Grand Opera House

Grand Opera House
Ranked #3 of 58 things to do in Wilmington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 August 2018 via mobile

This is a great place and a Wilmington gem. It is a Victorian era opera house that was completely restored in the 1980s. It remains beautiful today. They feature a great lineup of live performances throughout the year. For the most part, the performers are a little "past their prime" but they are still good. The ticket prices are very reasonable as well. I highly recommend the Grand Opera House.

Thank Ted D

Been to the Grand to see some really awesome shows and performances! Every seat in the house is a great seat and the atmosphere is just so comfortable!

Be ready to hear some of the finest accoustics anywhere. A single violin fills the house with beautiful music. Go on line to find so many offerings from symphonic concerts to Opera. Worth the trip from Philadelphia.

Wonderfully historic venue with amazing acoustics. Show after show of delightful entertainment. Located in the center of Wilmington, walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Perfect for a memorable night out.

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.
