Detroit Opera House is a lovely historic building. The decor is interesting and lovely. A performance of Wicked at the Detroit Opera House was my opportunity to enjoy this lovely building. The opera house is easily accessible with public transportation if needed. A variety of...More
The Detroit Opera House was a wonderful example of vintage architecture and decor. I have to confess I love old buildings because of the detailing that just doesn't happen today. Once you enter the Opera House, it's like you step back in time to before...More
The Detroit Opera House does a wonderful job of offering opportunities for classic and modern art to shine in a city known for the arts. We have attended shows here for over a decade, and we've never been disappointed by the quality of the performances...More
My sisters, daughter and I went to see Wicked at this venue. It was my first time there. It was beautiful. The show was amazing. The staff were very helpful in assisting people to the right place and their seats. What is lacking, as it...More
Spent the evening at the Detroit Opera House with my mother. We went to see Wicked. The opera house is in downtown Detroit and it is so easy to get to and to park. The establishment itself is opulent! We enjoyed a cocktail in the...More
Loved seeing Wicked here in Detroit! Staff was helpful and friendly. Hall was a bit crowded before the show—hard to get to and from the bathroom and to get drinks. I would return here for another show!
Best restaurants around Detroit Opera House (7 Replies)
Hello! My boyfriend's birthday is coming up soon, and we will be going to a matinee' show of the Lion King at the Detroit Opera House. I would like to take him to a nice, yummy lunch before the show. Does anyone have any restaurant recommendations? Prefereably somewhere within walking distance to the Opera House so we only have to park once. (The show will be on a Saturday.) Thank you in advance for your help!

Detroit Opera House seating. let me know; thanks (4 Replies)
Hi there am thinking of seeing Wicked when it's in Detroit and wondering what the best seats are at the Detroit Opera House. I am a big theatre & Wicked fan and like to be as close as possible. What's available for the date I want to go to is the back of the Orchestra & the Balcony. What is the view like of the stage from the back of the Orchestra? Are there any obstructions such as poles? Does being beneath the balconies affect the view? Also what is the view like from the Balcony?...More

The "best seat" in any theatre is a matter of opinion. How far back on the main floor are the seats? From the rear, you can't see the top of the proscenium, so you wouldn't be able to see some of the flying sequences. The Opera House has no poles or internal obstructions. Row AA of the balcony hangs approximately over row M of the orchestra and balcony row F is roughly about row Z of orchestra.

I'm considering attending a concert in late June at the Detroit Opera House. Although I've been there several times, I'm not very familiar with downtown Detroit, other than knowing that I certainly don't want to make a wrong turn in certain areas. What's the surrounding neighborhood like? Is it safe? Is it walkable at night? Are there any good hotels close that are walkable? I'd prefer not to drive once there, as with most big cities parking is not inexpensive. Thanks in advance for any local...More

The area around the Opera House is a nice area. There are plenty of bars and restaurants and you’re not too far from Comerica Park and Ford Field. The Hilton Garden Inn would be closest to the Opera House. You could also check Greektown Casino Hotel and the Athenaeum as they are fairly close. I spend a lot of time in that area and I wouldn’t spend time there if I didn’t feel safe. In addition to the hotels there are some really good restaurants in the area as well……..Detroit Seafood Market,...More
