Attraction details
Owner description: The Grand Opera House is a historic opera house located at the corner of High Avenue and Market Street in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. It was built in 1883, and has since undergone two renovations. The first renovation took place during the 1980s and the second in 2009. The theater was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. The Grand is owned by the City of Oshkosh and leased to and operated by the non-profit Oshkosh Opera House Foundation.

This is an absolutely beautiful restoration of a Victorian-era theatre. Musicians and others love to perform here--it's intimate and the acoustics are good. My only complaint is that the seats are small--they're made for the smaller people of an earlier time. And, sad to say, the place is not booking nearly the number and quality of acts that it did a decade ago. I think it lost some business to nearby Appleton's Performing Arts Center (which is indeed magnificent).

Oshkosh almost tore this place down! It is an absolutely stunning, smaller, but very grand opera house. The acoustics are unbelievable. Go see a play here or entertainment, you won't regret it.

I'm not a big opera fan but have seen a few when Gail Dobish came to perform a few years back. The place was pretty decent and I did enjoy myself.
