Detroit Opera House
The Detroit Opera House is home to the Michigan Opera Theatre which puts on several operas per year like La Bohème last month and the Magic Flute and Rigoletto, playing this Spring. The world premier of Cyrano De Bergerac, written by MOT's director David Dichiera, was held here in October 3 years ago. This venue also hosts some fabulous dance and ballet companies. The Nutcracker was just performed here and coming up is the Joffrey Ballet and Alvin Ailey. The musical Mary Poppins ("Magic on stage" according to the Free Press!) is currently performing through January 2, 2011. The building, which dates back to 1922, was extensively renovated by the MOT and reopened in 1996 and is a pretty glorious showplace.
