ST. LOUIS, MO. (KMOX) — The Queen of Soul and a late-night TV icon will be the headline acts when the Peabody Opera House reopens in St. Louis this fall.

Peabody officials say Aretha Franklin and Jay Leno will help usher in the new era of the venue formerly known as the Kiel Opera House. The $79 million renovation is nearing completion in time for the reopening gala on October 1st.

    Peabody Opera House is not reopening. Kiel Opera House is reopening,
    re-named Peabody. Neither is it the new Peabody Opera House. Have seen that in a news report. The St. Louis media does not add to its credibility displaying its extensive ignorance of this matter. You all need a class, and fast.
