Arts and Culture

Newberry Opera House

Built in 1881 at a cost of $30,000, the Newberry Opera House has served as the city centerpiece for more than 126 years.  In the mid-1990's, the French Gothic inspired structure underwent a $5.5 million renovation which restored it to its historic splendor and converted it to a state-of-the-art performance facility. Presenting its 10th season, the Newberry Opera House hosts about 170 events annually ranging from chamber music, opera, and dance performances to country-western, big band, and beach music concerts. Headliners have included Kathy Mattea, Lou Rawls, Crystal Gayle, Edwin McCain, The Letterman, Vienna Boys Choir, The Moscow Ballet, Kris Kristofferson and many, many more.
