About the Monticello Opera House:
“The Monticello Opera House, (MOH), is known as one the premier historic structures in the City of Monticello, Fl. The Opera House is part of a thriving downtown business adjacent to the historic county courthouse. It remains a cornerstone building for the community and the Monticello Historic District, the 3rd to be established in the state after St. Augustine and Pensacola districts.
Had it not been for a small group of dedicated citizens in the 1970’s the building would have been demolished. The theater was considered elaborate when built. The stage and orchestra pit over-sized. Original “cheaters” still hang from wooden racks above the stage. Two elaborately decorated Moorish influence box seats with decorative sheet metal and painted decoration remain, as do remnants of the original gas footlights.
Gilt tin medallions surround the stage facade as well as the front of the balcony. Original large elaborate ceiling fixtures of tine and mirrors have been converted to electric, rehung and are in daily service. The theater is considered to have almost perfect acoustics, a delight for performing artists who often prefer to perform without amplification.
As one of the oldest surviving performing venues in the state, the Monticello Opera House deserves support now to continue to serve generations of the future.”
