It is a beautiful historic building, too bad the screen is too small for the room especially if you are sitting more than halfway back or in the balcony. The sound system does not seem clear enough either. This was a surprise because, being the largest venue, it was the site for the Hollywood sneak peeks. Many of the smaller... More

Napa Opera House is a wonderful old 1870's beautifully restored theater. Staffed by volunteers and supported by the community and visitors.

Tickets are very reasonable and theater is located in the heart of Napa (the City), CA... More

Not a reason people come to Napa, but certainly a reason you would enjoy yourself here. Affordable shows, great volunteers, and plenty of wines being poured.

One of the best venues for live music in the Bay Area. It is small with great acoustics. We sat in the balcony, middle, first row, but from our viewpoint there did not seem to be a bad seat in the house. The concert was fabulous. We so enjoyed it, we will be back for other performances at the Opera... More

It is a small town with a small opera house compared to the big cities but the entertainment is big, The attendants are more helpful than other places I have been. Nice restaurant with live music for after the concert.
