The Music Hall is a well preserved gem of history that hosts the excellent Cincinnati Symphony. It is located in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood which makes it conveniently close to a wide variety of restaurants and shops. We have travelled from Indianapolis several times to attend concerts and have always been thoroughly delighted.

This is a beautiful hall. The only problem is when this hall was built people were much smaller so if you a touch over weight you will have a tight fit.

I didn't go to a concert here, but that's primarily what this building's function is. It looks like a nice historic building from the outside and I'm sure it's nice inside, but I didn't go in. I love great architecture and this place is from a time when buildings had shape and style, now everything just looks like 'Legos'. Great... More

This is an old bier hall converted into a very fancy opera house. Current stage plays and special events are held here. The accoustics are phenomenal. You can stand at the front stage and talk in a normal voice and people way up in the balcony can hear you. There is a building attsched next door that can be rented... More

One of my favorite places in the city. You feel like you've entered a time warp, back to a time of elegance.

We saw an opera here recently, and the building is beautiful. If you're coming for a show, parking is around the building and usually only about $5. We were a little disappointed once we got inside and saw how much of the stage we would miss because of the location of our seats. Granted, we didn't buy the most expensive... More

My wife and I went to see Turandot in this historic building. It was like stepping back in to time as you enter the main lobby you will see these massive and beautiful chandeliers, and a lavish balcony. The main auditorium is spectacular with it's domed ceiling, red velvet chairs, and stunning sound from the orchestra and the opera.
