We have enjoyed many fine operas at the Central City Opera House. It is a grand old theater with very good seating. All productions we have viewed had suburb casts.

The historic opera house has been carefully restored and is very comfortable. Their production of Baby Doe was excellent. It is the 60th anniversary of the opera which was first produced in Central City. Do also enjoy lunch or dinner at Rouge/Face next door.
