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.

Beautiful building with amazing history in the Queen City. It has been a long time since my visit but warm memories abound!

I see opera performances here a couple times a year and I've seen the symphony here a few times as well. It is, to me, the most beautiful building in Cincinnati by far, and one of the most beautiful I've seen anywhere. Not only outside, but also inside. Acoustics are great so it's easy to hear everywhere and there really... More

A beautiful, historic, ornate building located in downtown Cincinnati. I started going to enjoy the Cincinnati Pops and have enjoyed every show. Ushers recommended that I select the balcony for the great acoustics, though I understand the sounds are fabulous throughout the hall. Parking is easy and inexpensive. I suggest getting there early in good weather to enjoy Washington Park... More

This Hall is amazing. I had the pleasure of both attending and singing in concerts that were part of the MayFestival. The staff is helpful and pleasant. I'd recommend sitting in the balcony - the sound was great there.

I had to visit this historic building so we got tickets to the symphony. It was a wonderful experience and I will go back again on our next visit. Guest pianist was very talented! Looked for ghosts but didn't spot any in this famous haunted historic building!!

What a beautiful building. My wife and I love to go watch the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra at Music Hall. AMAZING acoustics! Not a bad seat anywhere. My wife loves the chandelier. They have also spent a lot of time and money fixing up the surrounding area. Parking is easy with plenty of options including one garage with a direct walkway... More

We were fortunate enough to attend a concert at Cincinnati Music Hall to see the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra as well as The National perform both alone and together. Music Hall is as beautiful as it is historic and the city has done a tremendous job building up the area around it. Of course, the Orchestra is fabulous, too, so an... More

We came early to the MusicNOW festival on a Sunday night. The architecture and the overall feel of the establishment is retro and wonderful. The old time stage with the lighting is fantastic. The seats are all great. We were first row again and WOW. The closing act rocked Americana. Across the street from the venue is a wonderful park... More
