The Sorg Opera House had both gas and electric lighting when it opened in 1891. The stage was always lit with electric lights and used brine dimmers of which I had 3 at one time. There was a large gas-light chandelier hanging in the center of the auditorium. Gas-lights were also at the box seats and around the outside edge of both balconies. The remaining auditorium lights and side-lights were electric.
