Bardovan Announces Reopening This August With Shows Going on Sale Next Week

Bardavon Presents has announced it will reopen this August after being closed for 14 months during the COVID-19 pandemic. Four new shows will join a number of previously scheduled performances postponed and rescheduled in 2020. More shows and available sales will be announced in the coming weeks.

Erected in 1868 by British immigrant James Collingwood, the Collingwood Opera House featured a plethora of various performances throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. In 1923, the opera house became known as The Bardavon. Since then, the building continues to serve as a focal point for the performing arts, evolving and thriving throughout the years.
