Bardavon announces reopening with tickets on sale this week
Bardavon Presents announced it will reopen in August after being closed for 14 months during the COVID-19 pandemic. Four new shows will join a number of performances previously scheduled, postponed and rescheduled in 2020. Other available shows and sales will be announced in the coming weeks.
Erected in 1868 by British immigrant James Collingwood, the Collingwood Opera House presented a plethora of diverse performances throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. In 1923, the opera took the name of The Bardavon. Since then, the building continues to serve as a focal point for the performing arts, evolving and thriving over the years.
