Noted in National Geographic Traveler for its superb acoustics, the 1881 Opera House was an important stop on the old Vaudeville circuit. Today's schedule is diverse, from folk, rock, classical, and jazz. Recent renovations include a new steel roof, sound system and theater seats. Relaxed, intimate and all seats have a great view. The Opera House is located in the heart of Jim Thorpe's historic district, just a quick stroll to pubs, restaurants, lodging and shops.

A very nice place to see a show. The acoustics are very good. Really no bad seat in the house and attracts a fun group of people that are friendly and enjoy good music. Great place to catch some music while visiting Jim Thorpe

Acoustically, they are all good. If you want a great overall view, balcony seats are great, too but truly, tutti soon benissimo! Spero vederli!
