By this time next year, the Peabody Opera House, formerly the Kiel Opera House, should be bustling with holiday entertainment. Executive V-P for events and new business John Urban is not from Saint Louis, but compares the Opera House to Radio City Music Hall.
Some of the new features will be the Kiel Club bar and Resturant , a VIP Lounge and ADA seating. Additionally, there will be an additional three side theatres….two will be used for banquet rooms, the third for community theatre.
While John Urban says there is already some confirmed entertainment booked, he would not name names. Instead, he said a get the word out campaign will be launched in the Spring.
The Peabody Opera House is on target to open in the Fall of 2011.
