We have attended numerous events at the Grand Opera House, including the Nutcracker, symphony performances, comedians, and solo and group singing acts. We have sat upstairs, downstairs and the balconies. For solo artists such as comedians or singers the box seats are PERFECT. They are real chairs and you have plenty of room. There are 6 seats per box, so... More

Watch the schedule for really great traveling shows. It is a beautiful theater with a huge stage and great acoustics. Don't miss the 'carry it into the theater drinks" that you can purchase at the right Near the entrance. I think they also have tours of the theater but check for times.

Drove down to spend a night in Macon to see a concert here. What a great atmosphere! The only strange thing is the drinking rule but it certainly wasn't a problem...just strange. In all, we loved the place.

The grand is a "Grand Ole Dame of The South." In 1908, a production of Ben Hur was shown. A treadmill was installed in the stage to make the live horses and chariots really move. Houdini used the trap doors; one still is used to this day. Thankfully, due to the energies of brilliant people, The Grand was not demolished... More

I have attended many functions at the Grand Opera House. It is a beautiful venue. The acoustics are excellent. I have sat in a variety of sections, including the back row. There is not a bad seat in the house. The balcony seats are a little cramped for leg space, but you can see and hear just fine. The only... More

Visit here regularly to attend concerts and plays. The restoration is very impressive. The only negative would be the temperature control. Due to difficulty in maintaining even temps throughout the building.

This is such a lovely venue. And if you buy their $10 mug (secure sip top), you can bring your beverage in with you. We bring our cocktails with us (or you can purchase them there as well). Every seat is great.

The facility is beautiful, very elegant with good acoustics. In the future I would check more carefully about the particular show to attend before purchasing tickets. We saw "Downtown" , a local production of uneven quality and political overtones that were unexpected. I would recommend the facility as very lovely.
