We attended a wedding at the Detroit Opera House. It was a beautiful venue. The staff was super attentive. We have attended performances previously, but a wedding at the Opera House was incredibly special!

I have only been to one show at this venue. (John Mellencamp on June 10/15) so I am giving it 3 stars rather than 2 since this review is based on only one experience. The good: The venue is beautiful. The seats are comfortable. The staff is friendly. The bad: There was very little crowd control during the concert. I... More

I went here to see WICKED and the show was awesome . The sound was great and everything was wonderful. From what I saw of the Opera house (I came with a school group and we arrived about 20 minutes before the show started and left as soon as the show ended) it was very nice and the paintings on...

I love this building but the inability to walk from one side to the other inside the building drives me crazy. I hate that I have to go outside, walk halfway around the building, and go in another door. This is one of the dumbest designs I've ever seen. If the stage is not in use you can cut across... More

I was there for a TedX conference last year and for David Sedaris this past weekend. The theater is gorgeous. Beautiful intricate art adorns very available spot until your eyes can't take in any more. Every time you're there you'll see something new. For me I discovered dragons this time. Yeah!! It feels amazing just to be there. I like... More

My husband and I saw Shen Yun (Chinese dance and music show) and The Book of Mormon (comedy musical) here, and enjoyed both experiences very much. The venue is stunning. Seats are comfortable. Acoustics are excellent. Parking isn't a problem at all since there's a garage across the street. There are restaurants nearby to go to before or after shows.... More

It was a funny night. The place was packed. Mostly Baby Boomers so it turned out real nice. I laughed the whole night. I was seated in back but the view was good. The seats were spaced so it was easy getting in and out of the row. Excellent!

We have had main floor, balcony and box seats in this gorgeous venue. All have been terrific, but prefer box. Have seen performances ranging from comedy to opening night Don Giovanni and attended the opening night gala. Jeans to formal attire. It has all been great.

Went with my family to see WICKED. The balcony seats were great, the venue was easy to get to, the only problem we has was the seat space is kind of tiny. My husband is not an overly tall man and his knees were pressed into the seat in front of him. Other than a few cramps, we had a... More
