Inside Scoop

There is a sense of calm, of happiness, that pervades the church. People often ask me whether the place is haunted by spirits of the past. I always say yes, to determine their reaction. But I think maybe there are some spirits about the place, and I sometimes think I feel their presence when I'm in the church alone, playing the piano. - Dave Hurlbert

Venue Features
The Scene:
The beautiful and historic church was closed in 1997 and repurposed as a non-profit center for local performing artists. Income from venue rentals help subsidize performances throughout the year of classical music, jazz, theatre and ballet.
Design:
The plastered brick church was designed in the Romanesque style and features handsome paired towers with onion-shaped domes which dominate the skyline of the area. Arched openings at the first level are flanked on the side elevation by buttresses, and circular openings at the clerestory level light the interior. The center facade design is of brick, forming three blind arches. Arcades supported by slender box columns define the nave and side aisles. 
Standout Venue Features:
Guests often remark on the elegant lightness of the interior, as well as the authentic and faithful restoration.

Solange wasn’t the first to stumble upon the hallowed steps of the Marigny Opera Housefor her famed nuptials. These sacred halls have been previously walked by the likes of Lake Bell and her tattoo-artist hubby, you may recall the fantastically inventive dress she wore.
