Opened as the Music Hall on Halloween Night in 1895 with a performance by Dame Nellie Melba and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The theatre was designed after the Gewandhaus in Leipzig. It was not designed for motion pictures but did fill in with them during slow times, especially during the early part of the 20th Century.
The name was changed to the Lyric Theatre in October 1903, and it reverted back to Music Hall some time later. It is the home of the Baltimore Opera Company and I also read that the Baltimore Opera Co. has filed for Chapter 11. The two scheduled performances have been cancelled.
The theatre was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
