Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Attended a play at this jewel of a place for the first time since the pandemic. Though the past plays I attended have been staged in the banquet hall (with a delicious catered dinner and an open bar), sitting in the auditorium was really nice. The building is old but precious, with original wood throughout. Though I had an enjoyable time, the only drawback was the sound. I am not sure of the types of microphones, etc., used. I heard most of the actors clearly, but a couple of the actors' voices were a bit muffled throughout the play. All in all, I am looking forward to attending more plays. And if/when I feel comfortable again being seated closely with other patrons at the same table, in a limited space while sharing a common meal, I will definitely do so - just not now. Though the auditorium is on the second floor and there are two flights of stairs, there is also an elevator available. Of note, for those who love quaint settings for performances, consider donating to MOH to help maintain the ambiance and structural features.

This is really surprisingly professional production for any community theater. The music is as amazing as the story! Try to see this!

The theater is beautiful. Acoustics are just fine. A little TLC is needed all around, but a beautiful venue, a piece of extraordinary architecture. The outdoor space appears quite lovely for an event, fundraiser, wedding or party, any time but July or August. Parking was not an issue. There is street parking and a city lot just across the street.

The production was good. Orchestra overpowered the singers and speakers during Act I, but hardly at all in Act II. Orchestra pit is higher than normal, so that may be the challenge. We thought of leaving but were glad we stayed for Act II. Actors were excellent and skilled, mostly experienced, quite attractive as a cast, but challenged by the volume of the orchestra. The dancing was beautifully choreographed and riveting to watch, a joy to see.

This venue offers a lot of entertainment, as well as education, so if you are interested, check it out. We will be returning.

If you are handicapped there is an elevator on the left side facing the stage. There are spaces near the elevator for wheelchairs.

There is a first floor space with a reasonably priced bar and ample space for people to chat and mingle.

Attended a dinner show at the Monticello Opera House (murder mystery) with my husband and my sister (not sure why the sort of visit indicated below only specifies families with young children and teens). We were seated at a table near the back. Though being up front doesn't help any more that sitting in the back as far as solving the murder, I would have liked to have had the option to choose my table. As far as I know, the tables are randomly assigned. I had trouble seeing a bit over the heads of other patrons, but I guess that comes with the territory in these sorts of venues. The food that was served during the dinner was good, though it would have been nice to have had some tea in addition to the water that came with the meal (which was catered by Carrie Ann and Co.). There was a bar available for folks who wanted alcoholic drinks and/or soft drinks. The folks seated at the table with us were not known to us, but were nice and we enjoyed our time with them. It was neat discussing our ideas on who we thought was the guilty party in the play. We had a great time; loved the audience participation. Kudos to MOH on doing a neat job with this. Will look forward to attending this type of show in the future...

The Monticello Opera House is a historical and traditional venue for theatre that will transport you to a simpler time. The regular performances are staffed largely by regional experienced and emerging artists that have been bright and professional. Dinner and lunch, as well as an impressive bar, are available for a complete experience.

The Opera House has many events that include a dinner downstairs and then a show in the upstairs auditorium. However, we went to see a smaller production of "Happily Ever After' in which the playwright was invited to take part in the event. The performance was held downstairs and included a Q&A session with the playwright, director, and actors.

My review of the Opera House is in a general context of both the Opera House and also an enjoyable evening spent in Monticello. Although it was a smaller event that did not even include their main venue upstairs, it was nice to have dinner at Rev Café also located on the main square, and then walk across the street for cocktails and a show at the Opera House. The small town and historic building were a great setting for both, and the Opera House did a commendable job to putting the event together and adding this more intimate format to their calendar of events.

Main "opera house" is on second floor of this semi-antique building. Accessible by stairs and by tiny elevator. First floor offers space for more intimate shows - usually accompanied by catered fine dinner. Wide selection of entertainment throughout the year. Friendly atmosphere.

The Opera House is a nice place to visit for a variety of events. We did not try the dinner beforehand but the aroma as we entered the venue and smiles of the patrons who did partake seemed to indicate it was nicely done. I would like to give this venue more stars but cannot for one reason - show management. Please start your show on-time or at least a semblance of on-time. 30 minutes late isn't close and judging by there reaction of those seated nearby late starts seem to be the rule. I forgive the other clumsiness of poorly managed lighting (first act was left standing in the dark after the house lights were dimmed) and sound system (took 3 songs to adjust the vocal mic level) but hey, its an old venue run by volunteer art lovers. You have a potential gem so keep trying, we'll be back.
