Philadelphia Metropolitan Opera House

We complete the renovation of the National Historic Register Philadelphia Metropolitan Opera House that returned the building to use as a live music venue. When the Met first opened on North Broad Street in 1908 it was one of the largest theaters of its kind, seating more than 4,000. It served as an opera house through 1934 and remained in use as a movie theater, ballroom, sports venue, and a church. The Met had fallen into serious disrepair in recent years and was unused and vacant from 1988 until 1995 when it was purchased for use as the Holy Ghost Headquarters Revival Center. The Met opened to the public in 2018 with a concert by Bob Dylan.
