My wife and I recently flew from Baltimore to Detroit to see Tori Amos in concert at the Detroit Opera House. The venue was absolutely stunning. The sound was amazing. Given that it was a rock concert, the venue's gift shop was closed so that...More

I am (almost) always impressed by the productions hosted at the Detroit Opera House--whether they are dance productions, full-blown operas, or the Broadway musical fare. The ticket prices range from very fair (the 2014 opera/dance season tickets were extremely reasonable) to ridiculous ($150-$197 for the...More

Loved the show Wicked, but the place leaves room to grow. There is no where to be before or between acts of the show. People just piled into the small hall like lobby

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

Beautiful building and a wonderful place to see a show. But be advised that the stairs are steep, limited bathrooms and only 1 elevator. If you have limited mobility stay on main floor for seating.

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!

Wonderful venue! Very friendly staff and they are very talented at intermission with getting everyone through the bathroom line and back to their seats. Sound and visuals were wonderful. Seats are decently comfy and I cannot think of a bad thing to say.

I guess it would depend on time of day you were planning on going. Rusted crow is great. Basically anywhere in Greektown although santorini is my favorite. For awesome brunch dime store is great. Hockeytown. Chelis.
