An amazing place to see a show. Great acoustics in a glorious room. But be prepared for some ridiculousness.
I am surprised by the number of photos on this Yelp page, as I was kicked out of the building for taking a picture -- and...More
We visited the Opera House to see The National and came away very impressed. The architecture is really detailed and unique. The only drawback was that the lobby area got quite crowded with all of the vending stations.
I only visit opera houses when I'm going to Grand Opera, and I can't quite imagine how any other of the performing arts would fit. It seems to me that the opera and the opera house are inextricably linked. I've seen no better pairing than...More
My partner and I went there to see the Pet Shop Boys show in Nov 2016. Very elegant venue with chandeliers and nice wordwork. The only thing is the over-the-head security we had to face. Even after I went through the metal detector with my...More
We first saw this magnificent building when we were on an architectural tour on the Chicago River. It was sitting there like a diamond in the rough. We then had to check it out. We didn’t have time to watch a show there but we...More
Came here for the first time the other day. I have to say that I am surprised by the overwhelming number of positive reviews. Though the performance was excellent, I thought the venue had issues.

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
