This venue is perfect! There really isn't a bad seat in the house. The acoustics really are amazing! We have been to several performances here and we are never disappointed in the venue. Most recently my son and I attended the Heart Behind the Music. You could see each artist perfectly. When you factor in traveling time and fuel, if... More

If you are ever in Meridian, try to attend a show at the MSU Riley Center. The restoration of this late 1800's theatre is breathtaking! I had the opportunity to see the theatre in the early 1990's and again around the year 2000, and the restoration job is so beautiful! The seasons provide much variety and great entertainment!

Fantastic place to see live music. The theater has been completely redone and is beautiful in the old opera house style.

We enjoyed this venue for a children's play. The place is very intimate, and as my title suggests, not a bad seat in the house. My only disappointment is the lack of concessions. They offer a variety of music artists and plays throughout the year. We will be returning in the spring for another children's play.

Worth seeing and touring even if you can't make an event. Professional and Big-Name artists all are floored by the sound and the facility itself and state it frequently. Do not miss this while in Meridian!

A restored opera house with amazing acoustics. Beautiful and all seats are close to the entertainment. A must visit site in Mississippi.

Great facility and fun events. We particularly loved the Disney symphony where my daughters were able to get dressed up and take pictures with the Disney princesses! Very nice facilities!

We have been season ticket holders to the MSU Riley Center in Meridian since the Opera House was restored. The facility is a rare GEM and every artist that performs here is awestruck! Each season the Performing Arts Series brings a variety of well known talent to our town and each performance is outstanding. My husband and I enjoy each... More
