Detroit Opera House History

If you're looking for entertainment around Rock City – and who isn't – you're definitely in the right spot, as the Detroit Opera House is just one of those places that you absolutely need to make it to if you're ever in the area. Originally opened all the way back in 1922, this venue has become a beacon for talented performers over the year, which is something that you'll see loud and clear if you make it out to the stands to see it all for yourself.

After decades of solidifying it as a local entertainment icon, this theater went through a major renovation in 1996, relaunching it in the local opera consciousness to help make it the place to be if you're looking for live entertainment. We all know that it can be tempting to sit at home and pop on a flick, but there is something extra special about being a part of a show that happens before your very eyes. When it opened in 1996, the Detroit Opera House didn't exactly skimp on the entertainment either, as they brought in Luciano Pavarotti – someone you probably have heard of. Once you're there in the stands listening to a great set of musicians at the Detroit Opera House, you'll be glad that you're not anywhere else.
