Lovely historic building with good acoustics but there are a lot of obstructed view seats. To charge over a $100 for seats that can only see half the stage and look into the back of speakers is not reasonable.

The building is very beautiful. I would have loved to do a tour, I just some parts because I went to see a Ballet (Cinderella) which I highly recommend.

Going to Citizens Bank Opera House to see The Nutcracker was an experience I will never forget. Parking at the local parking garage was not tough at all. It was very inexpensive and close to the opera house. The bronze and marble were an absolutely stunning sight. It looked like something out of a fairytale. The catering was quite good, too. The chocolate pretzels were the best I have ever tasted. The seats were very comfortable. It took a little bit of time to get the show started, but I understand the ballerina's need some time to warm up. The dancers were absolutely magnificent. I loved when the snow fell and the ballerinas, dressed in white, shimmering dresses floated across the stage. I would totally recommend going there if you want to see the performance of your lifetime.

I loved the historical tour! A friend recommended it and I was able to purchase directly on the website, I wasn’t sure what to expect but we learned about the history of the building. The coolest part was standing on stage.

After the ballet, I'm now getting spammed by them and have to spend valuable time getting off their lists? I supported their ballet and now they're harassing me. CANCEL this organization.

Saw Hamilton here. The performance was great, but the location was even better. A terrific theater, beautiful and great acoustics. Definitely come see a show here if you can.

This place is fancy from the time you see the outside and only gets more the deeper you go into this place.
Parking is impossible.
The crowds were unbelievable and made me claustrophobic.
The place is beautiful and you could spend hours just looking at all the fancy trim and art work.
Love to go back.

We saw Hairspray. It was fabulous. Packed house. We were in row S of the Orchestra great view. Seats are a little tight as it’s an old building, but comfy. The only real downside is the line for the ladies restroom. They really need another one. Staff were great though, with directing people to their seats and marshaling the lines.
Great place to see a show.

We came to see Wicked and boy were we impressed. The theater was absolutely beautiful, definitely one of the top three theaters I’ve been at. The theater literally did not have a bad seat in the house. The seats were comfortable, you did not feel cramped, plenty of room to be able to watch the show. The aesthetics and audio were perfect. I will definitely come back to watch any other production held here.
