So I bought my husband tickets to see Bob Dylan at Baltimore's Lyric Opera House for his birthday--he's a huge Dylan fan and we expected to have a good time. We did, sort of. While Dylan didn't disappoint, the venue did. Positives first: the Lyric Opera House is cool--great chandeliers, old-fashioned velvet seats, interesting architecture, and a really neat neighborhood... More

This once amazing building is still a terrific place to see a show just went to see Hannibal Buress and it is so nice not to be stuck in a concrete wall cold building with no style. With a little work and a lot of cash it could be back to it's original glory until then I will still go... More

Saw Jay Leno at the Lyric. Jay was awesome - I laughed from the time he started talking until the end of his show. The Lyric was sold out, it was an older crowd. It was a great show. The Lyric itself isn't as pretty as other theaters I've been to, but it was nice and well staffed. Parking was... More

The Lyric is a great place to see a show or concert. I've see a few shows there, the acoustics are good, but it is a little dated. The seating bowl is very cramped and the bathroom facilities are old and in need of repair. There is a parking garage across the street and it is easy to find. The... More

I went to the first show of the Cirque Dreams Holidaze last night and it was amazing! We had box seats and the view was great! The acrobatics, sets, costumes and music were all brilliant and the performers were all stunning. The cake pops that they had at the snack bar were delicious and I enjoyed seeing and taking pictures... More

Ok since I had discounted tickets of $15 each, nothing to complain about. The theater staff were helpful and professional. But you might not get a smile. I was confused on the seating arrangement. I was told to sit anywhere I wanted in "this" area. Huh? Ok. It wasn't packed out so that didn't bother me. Sofia the first was... More

It's nice to have the option of different types of entertainment. Not every seat is a good view I guess because its older. The tickets were a normal price. A few metered parking in walking distance which are free on Sundays. A lot across the street for ten dollars is not bad either for Baltimore.

Wonderful acoustics that complemented her amazing voice and the band. Staging was bold with brilliant colors . Just the right size venue for a concert. Great visibility, too . The hall is just lovely. A Classical design highlighted by wall sculptures mader a great back drop for Aretha' s Performance .
