Attended the Bela Fleck concert. Such a gem in Barre, Vermont. Great acoustics and comfortable seating. They should reconfigure the lobby for refreshments and open flow to get to the restroom during short intermissions. People stand around and block those wishing to move through.

We went to another concert at the opera house and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is such a comfortable space and the sound is excellent. It doesn’t matter where you sit or what kind of performance you are going to see.

The Barre Opera House is a charming venue for any event. All seats give you a terrific view, and the acoustics are great. We prefer the balcony, so you can really see everything. Don’t miss this wonderful place!
