Fodor's Expert Review Grand Opera House

Wilmington Arts/Performance Venue

There's not a bad seat in the house at this working theater that also hosts jazz, classical, and pop performances. Built by the Masonic Order in 1871 and restored a hundred years later, the four-story Grand's facade is cast iron painted white in French Second Empire style to mimic the old Paris Opera. The adjoining Giacco Building houses a smaller theater and art galleries.
