This is a great place and a Wilmington gem. It is a Victorian era opera house that was completely restored in the 1980s. It remains beautiful today. They feature a great lineup of live performances throughout the year. For the most part, the performers are...More
Be ready to hear some of the finest accoustics anywhere. A single violin fills the house with beautiful music. Go on line to find so many offerings from symphonic concerts to Opera. Worth the trip from Philadelphia.
Wonderfully historic venue with amazing acoustics. Show after show of delightful entertainment. Located in the center of Wilmington, walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Perfect for a memorable night out.
I had the pleasure of seeing Puccini's Suor Angelica (Sister Angelica) there. Intimate venue that's been restored/maintained in the ways you'd hope these old venues are. Lot's of great dining near by. There are also a lot of friendly safety patrol people always around (look...More
