Opened in 1878, the Cincinnati Music Hall is the home to several performing arts groups, including the Cincinnati Ballet, Cincinnati Opera, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra. The Music Hall's Springer Auditorium can fit 3,516 audience members in its red seats. And that doesn't include the ghosts; the Music Hall was built over a cemetery, which has spawned rumors that it's haunted.

Recent visitors can't stop raving about their experience. According to one TripAdvisor, "You will love any event you attend at the Cincinnati Music Hall. From the beautiful architecture to the sounds of the orchestra. You will not be disappointed." However, some visitors do say that the place is beginning to look worn, citing the faded carpet and crumbling plaster.

You'll find the music hall in downtown Cincinnati on Elm Street (right across from Washington Park). The ticket office, however, is located a few blocks south at the Aronoff Center for the Arts at 650 Walnut Street. The ticket office is open business days from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Ticket prices and show times vary. For more information, visit the Music Hall's website.
