Philadelphia, PA - Watch drones race inside the Philadelphia Metropolitan Opera House

posted by ThrHistoricalSociety on August 26, 2016 at 11:56 am


From Curbed Philadelphia: About a month ago, a group called the Philly Quad Squad went inside the Philadelphia Metropolitan Opera House to race drones for a segment on CSN Philly’s 700 Level Show. True, the 2:45-minute video is more about the drone racing than the opera house, but it still allows viewers to sneak a unique peek through the space.

Take a very fast tour of the theater yourself:

Developer Eric Blumenfeld, who owns a stake in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Opera House, has plans to turn it into a major music venue after a $35 million renovation.

This place seems huge after seeing the drone footage.It seems to me it would be a prime for restoration as a Broadway venue or concert.
