Lancaster Opera House
Ranked #1 of 8 things to do in Lancaster
Attraction details
Reviewed January 27, 2014

This "opera house" is way more than that. We just saw a wonderful show, again, and had a great time. Every time we've been there, we've not been disappointed. We love to sit in the balcony to see better. The building shares space with the Lancaster municipality, but that has no affect at all on the uniqueness of the theater. We've never seen a second-rate show; it's always first rate!

it's true that the occasional opera does make its way to this restored architectural masterpiece, but it also presents a wide variety of plays, musicales and concerts, with a fine, mostly volunteer staff and reasonable prices

We wait yearly for the opera's presented by the Nickel City Opera. We not only expect this opera, Don Pasquale, to be great, we know it will be. We had the opportunity to hear several of the singers at a recital and they were delightful. The opera its self is highly entertaining and it is a great one for first timers.

Any show we see at the Lancaster Opera House, we enjoy. The tickets are not over priced, comfortable seating and free parking. Great way to spend a "date night".

We saw Nunsense and the show was amazing. The only issue is seeing from the back rows. With no elevation of the rows and not having the rows staggared it was very hard to see. Who would know that row 14 was second to the last row. The Opera House is very historic but I worried that if there was ever a fire there would be no way out. The stairs were very crowded as they did not open the doors until late and there was a little concern if we all needed to get out for any reason.
